‘Stuff A Truck’ Collects 20K Lbs of Food for Local Pantries
The annual Stuff A Truck food drive hosted by Mackenthun’s Fine Foods collected more than 20,000 pounds of food this fall.
According to the Sun Patriot, the 20,500 pounds of food was split between food shelves in Waconia, Watertown and Norwood Young America. In Waconia specifically, the pantry received 11 pallets with a total of 8,500 pounds of food.
“It’s very important, especially at this time of the year. In summer, our donations go down considerably and really start picking up again in September, October,” Food shelf director Marty Cramer told the paper. “But we really do depend on Stuff A Truck and the holiday donations to keep our shelves stocked with a variety of foods.”
