Fans attending Sunday's Packers-Lions game donated approximately 22,400 non-perishable food items and $11,511 for the Packers Women's Association's 23rd Annual Food Drive for Paul's Pantry, a supplementary food distribution program for the needy in the greater Green Bay area.
Overall, in 23 years of conducting the food drive, the PWA has collected approximately 603,200 non-perishable food items and $225,961 for Paul's Pantry.
Festival Foods assisted promoting the effort with a 'Big Cart' in the Lambeau Field parking lot Sunday. Also, SuperValu, a food supplier to Festival Foods, delivered a truckload of donated food to the pantry Friday, Oct. 16, in recognition of World Food Day and the PWA Food Drive. Paul's Pantry had observed World Food Day this past Friday with a program reflecting on the hungry of the world and the local community. World Food Day, now in its 29th year, is a worldwide event designed to increase awareness, understanding and informed year-round action to alleviate hunger.
Additional donations and contributions can continue to be made directly at Paul's Pantry.
