Neighbors from across the greater Racine area are invited to help the Racine County Food Bank fill its shelves with a Stuff the Squad event at Malicki’s Piggly Wiggly.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 19 at The Pig, 5201 Washington Avenue, shoppers will have the opportunity to buy $5 and $10 pre-made bags food to stuff Mount Pleasant police squads that will be parked in front of the store.

The food bank is often referred to as the “United Way of Food” for the county because pantry shelves don’t just help less fortunate neighbors in Racine, it also provides needed food to residents in every corner of the county.

Stuff the Squad is an activity of the Community Oriented Policing (COP) program of the Mount Pleasant Police Department.
