You can make a difference while scoring tickets to a Brewers home game.

That’s because the Brewers are partnering with Pick ‘n Save to support their Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative by hosting an in-store food drive on Friday, Aug. 20.

Customers who donate four non-perishable items at select Pick ‘n Save locations during the event will receive two vouchers for complimentary tickets to pre-selected 2021 Brewers regular-season home games (with a maximum of four ticket vouchers per person). Items donated will benefit UMOS, Tosa Cares and Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative (MHVI).

The food drive will be held Aug. 20 from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the following Pick ‘n Save locations:

  • 2201 Miller Park Way, West Milwaukee
  • 1717 N. Mayfair Road., Wauwatosa
  • 250 W. Holt Ave., Milwaukee

Suggested items for donation include peanut butter, canned meat (in water), canned vegetables and pasta. 

Be sure to pick up a "Wisconsin Restaurant Cookbook" while you're there (all proceeds go to grant funding for Wisconsin restaurant relief).
