Helping Area Food Banks

One unique aspect of the Norwegian Foot March at USI, located in Evansville, is its commitment to giving back to the community. The weight participants carry in their rucksacks is based on non-perishable food items. Participants are encouraged to pack 24 pounds of non-perishable food items, which will be collected by the Student Veteran's Association during the check-out process. These donations will then be distributed to local food banks, making the event not only a physical challenge but also a charitable endeavor.
