It also includes a post-run festival featuring gourmet food trucks, entertainment, and a kid’s zone all within the Winner’s Circle at the Speedway. This is their third Foodie 5K of the season and they are expecting over 2,000 participants. The “Foodie 5K” will take place at Chicagoland Speedway, and registration is open now for participants and volunteers. More information can be found at www.SolveHungerToday.org/
Northern Illinois Food Bank leads the northern Illinois community in solving hunger by providing nutritious meals to those in need through innovative programs and partnerships. Since 1983, food manufacturers, local grocers, corporations, foundations, and individuals have come together to donate food and funds, and evaluate and repack food for distribution to 800 community food pantries and feeding programs serving more than 71,500 hungry neighbors each week across 13 counties. That commitment provided 57 million meals to those in need last year.
