POWER THE CADETS

In 2013 when The Cadets first introduced the Power The Cadets Campaign, we made it possible for fans, parents and alumni to adopt the corps for one meal or a full day and provide the nutritional energy that keeps The Cadets performing at their very best from the practice to the competition field.

Since then, we have had a tremendous response to this fundraiser, as supporters have shared a direct connection with the corps during that most precious time of the day: meal time!

We've seen groups of alumni pool their money to provide a full day of meals in the name of their section or a fallen Cadet brother or sister. Families have also purchased the meals for when the corps is in their hometown. No matter how you want to personalize it, there is a meaningful way for you to Power The Cadets!

The Cadets eat four meals per day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack are served to nearly 200 individuals every day out of our professional-quality food truck. This is not the food truck you see regularly downtown, this is a full-fledged tractor-trailer serving up 800 to 1,000 meals per day for 90 days! With your financial contribution and the work of our volunteer food crew, we make the culinary magic happen every day – but we need your support to help us!
