DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - It took three days to cook for a crowd of up to 6,000 people for the spaghetti feed tomorrow night for Grandma's Marathon.

Pounds upon pounds of pasta and sauce were prepared this week.
Organizers say even though they are expecting a crowd of 5,000, they always make extras, so they don't run out.

The sous chef says nothing goes to waste, all the extra food is donated, and proceeds from the spaghetti feed go toward supporting the marathon.

The meal includes plenty of carbs for runners.

"The big important part to the runners, it's the noodle. The runners tell us they want a sauce that's not very spicy and they just want a large, large quantity of those noodles. Of course. it is all-you-can-eat," said Tom Benson, the sous chef.

The spaghetti feed starts at the DECC Friday morning at 11 and runs until 9 p.m.
