MFE ProStart Invitational Competition

Giving Back

Each year, the Midwest Foodservice Expo and Restaurant Marketing Symposium finds ways to give back to the community, whether through food donations, scholarship awards, industry education and more.

Food Donations

At the close of the trade show on March 23, many MFE exhibitors will donate surplus perishables, canned goods, refrigerated items and serving supplies to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. These donations are redistributed to relieve hunger in the Milwaukee and Fox Valley areas.

Join us in thanking our exhibitors for joining the fight against hunger. We appreciate the support for the local community by providing food to people struggling with hunger.


Industry Education

Educational programs at the Midwest Foodservice Expo and Restaurant Marketing Symposium are offered to help support the industry in reaching professional goals and improve their business operations. These programs would not be possible without the generosity of foodservice establishments, suppliers and individuals that support the Wisconsin Restaurant Association Education Foundation

The Auction for Education in booth 636 on the MFE show floor supports student programs and scholarships distributed by the WRA Education Foundation. Peruse the hotel stays, vacation packages, food and beverage items, sports memorabilia and more to support a great cause - the future of foodservice.
