The Annual "Stuff-a-Truck" FOODraiser is used to restock

the warehouse and pantry at Southwest Michigan Community

Action Agency.


97.5 Y-Country broadcasts live from Roger's Foodland for one

week during the month of November. Throughout these days live

interviews with SMCAA staff, other community partners, local

officials, and business partners are conducted. Interviews

emphasize the need for food and share success stories of helping

local families.

​Do a little something that will make a big difference.

Every fall, the community bands together to help feed hungry families in Michigan's Great Southwest. In this economy, the need to raise more food is greater than ever because the need for such necessities is greater than ever. SMCAA provides necessary food and personal care items to thousands of individuals; hundreds of families right here in Berrien, Cass and Van Buren Counties.

Every year during Stuff-a-Truck, SMCAA, in partnership with 97.5 Y-Country, collects non-perishables and personal care items at Roger's Foodland. Listen as Y-Country broadcasts live each day of the drive at Roger's, and stop by to show your support.


Donating is simple -- just drop off in-date, non-perishables and personal care items at Roger's Foodland during the Stuff-a-Truck week. (It's easy to pick up a few extra items while you shop for your own groceries!) There are also the options to purchase pre-bagged groceries or to buy and donate a $10 Roger's gift card to be used by SMCAA to purchase needed. Cash donations are always welcome.

Some of the many things that SMCAA needs:

"Non-Perishable" food products (no "out of date/expired" items please!)

Canned Goods: veggies, tuna, fruit...

Boxed Food: pasta, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, coffee, juice...

Baking Products: flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, cake mix, cornmeal, cooking oil...

Personal Hygiene Products: shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, soap, lotion, laundry detergent, toothpaste, toothbrushes...

Baby Products: diapers, wipes, baby food, formula...
