MPA is proud to operate one of the best concessions stands at First Energy Stadium every home game of the Browns season as well as other stadium events!
How it works - Menlo Park Academy earns funds based on our on sales in the stand, so the more we sell, the more we earn! Last year we earned over $15,000 for MPA!!
Our Stand - We are located at Stand #148. It is a great location with a lot of potential. It is beneficial for us to have the right amount of volunteers for the concession stand. If we don't get enough people signed up to work a game, the stadium management will assign people to our stand and charge us for the staffing so it takes away from our profits.
Game Day - Our leader will arrive at the stadium for the leader's meeting 4.5 hours before game time. All other volunteers are required to arrive four hours before game time. Check in at the gate where the tram drops you off and proceed directly to our stand (#148). Gates open (and so does our stand) two hours before game time.

PARKING HAS CHANGED THIS SEASON. Parking will be at 1 Cleveland Center. The entrance to the garage is on the corner of E. 9th St. and St. Clair – see map. There will be shuttles taking employees from the lot to the stadium and back – pick up will be on Rockwell Ave.
·One Cleveland Center Garage on East 9th near the Galleria
·The “LOT FULL” sign will be out but the lot isn’t full – it is there to keep transient parkers out
·No charge to staff
·Enter off St. Clair
·Shuttles start at 10:00am and leave from Rockwell. It is about a 15 minute ride. If you choose to walk to the stadium from the parking garage, its about a 15 minute walk.
·Postgame shuttles will run as soon as traffic is cleared, This sometimes takes a long time, so it is often easier to walk.
All volunteers and NPO Groups will enter through the NE Gate. The shuttle will drop you off on the corner of Erieside Ave. and W. 3rd (same as last season) – walk up the ramp to the left of the East Gate and you will see the NE Gate to your left.
