Fans attending Sunday’s Packers-Rams game donated 27,400 non-perishable food items, a record for the event, as well as $15,021 for the Packers Women’s Association’s 25th Annual Food Drive for Paul’s Pantry, a supplementary food distribution program for the needy in the greater Green Bay area.
“Thank you to all the fans at today’s game who participated in the food drive,” said Laura Hawk, co-chairwoman of the drive. “We hope to continue the growth of this mission and bring attention to the need for food donations in this area.”
Overall, in 25 years of conducting the food drive, the PWA has collected approximately 644,200 non-perishable food items and $257,552 for Paul’s Pantry.
Festival Foods assisted with the promotion of the effort with a ‘Big Cart’ in the Lambeau Field parking lot Sunday.
Additional donations and contributions can continue to be made directly at Paul’s Pantry.
