Attendees are encouraged to bring food to benefit the Food Bank of Delaware and Philabundance

Sunoco is holding a major food drive for Philabundance and the Food Bank of Delaware at the Dover International Speedway from June 1 to June 3 during NASCAR race weekend. Sunoco’s food drive comes during a time when hunger relief organizations are seeing a record number of people coming to them for food.

Throughout the weekend, NASCAR fans are encouraged to donate food and donations to volunteers located at various locations on Speedway grounds.

Here are some of the most needed items that can also be found at the Giant Food Store in RV Lot 10 off of Leipsic Road:
