DSC_0678Partners ESPN Milwaukee and Roundy’s helped Hunger Task Force swing for the fences at the first annual All Star Food Drive on Wednesday, July 16. The drive happened during Major League Baseball’s All Star break and took place just down the street from Miller Park at Pick ‘n Save, 2201 Miller Park Way. Non-perishable food donations were collected at the store with special items prepackaged and available for purchase inside the store.
ESPN Milwaukee personalities broadcasted live from Pick ‘n Save, including Drew Olson and Alex Petakas, Dan Needles, Steve “the Homer” True, and Gabe Neitzel. Summer donations are especially important for Hunger Task Force as childhood hunger peaks when school is out and children living in poverty lose access to school meals. August is traditionally the busiest month for local food pantries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters.
