NOW: ’Fuel the Vote’ food drive-thru helps people get registered

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks gave out food to thousands of people and registered voters on Saturday, Oct. 3. The team held their "Fuel the Vote" in the lot south of Fiserv Forum. 

Local volunteers served free, contactless, pre-packaged meals while also helping community members get registered and ready to vote. 

Volunteers, including Congresswoman Gwen Moore and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, said these types of events help address food insecurity throughout the city. 

"I've already been to a couple of food banks already just this month as people recognize they have to fill the gap. we are all neighbors. We're all one family," Moore said. 

"Fuel the Vote" will serve the Milwaukee area in partnership with Project Isaiah, a coronavirus relief organization that has provided more than 2.5 million meals to those in need during the pandemic. 

Other partners include Wondaland, Live Nation Urban, and the United State of Women.
