Thank you to our
The Annual "Stuff-a-Truck" FOODraiser is used to restock
the warehouse and pantry at Southwest Michigan Community
The 2021 Stuff-a-Truck event will take place beginning on
Monday, November 15 through Saturday, November 20 at
Roger's Foodland in St. Joseph, Michigan. Visit us from
6:00am to 6:00pm Monday-Friday and from 10:00am to noon
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
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
