WNZR will have the NORTH ROUTE, starting at Dr. Price’s Vet Clinic on Mansfield Road.
WMVO/WQIO will have the EAST ROUTE, starting at Edgewood Road and working down East High Street.
All teams will meet at the Public Square in front of City Hall.

What is different? We are THROWING OUT the trophies.

The teams will start at 1:06pm and work to hit every house and business on their routes, picking up donations of food and dollars.

What is the NEW TWIST? Our 4 shopping cart teams will compete in the Food For The Hungry GAMES in front of City Hall around 2:15pm.

The teams will compete in 3 events: Fast Pack, Pedal Cart Pull and Food Bank Check Out.
You will definitely WANT to SEE the Food For The Hungry Games. It will be challenging. It will be fun. It will be a memory for everyone.

The WNZR team is Kelsey Bryte and Faith Orecchio! Their route is the North end of Mount Vernon. The team will be starting on Dr. Price’s Vet Clinic on Mansfield Road, travel down Mansfield Road, to North Main Street and then to the Public Square.
