PWA members, who will be wearing their husband's or significant other's jersey or "Help the Pack Sack Hunger" T-shirts, will collect non-perishable food items and cash donations in the stadium parking lot and at the gates prior to kickoff. Along with PWA members, volunteers from Paul's Pantry and the UWGB Men's Tennis Team will be assisting with the collection.
"This is a great event for the community each year," said Vanessa Lewis, PWA Food Drive Chairperson and girlfriend of Packers linebacker Na'il Diggs. "It not only allows us to do something for the community, but also lets fans contribute to a good cause and enjoy the game at the same time."
Food items can also be placed in bins, which will be located throughout the Lambeau Field parking lot.
In the previous 15 years of conducting the food drive, PWA has collected over 294,000 non-perishable food items and more than $116,100 for Paul's Pantry, a supplementary food distribution program for the needy in the greater Green Bay area.
