Annual Stuff-a-Truck 

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

the warehouse and pantry at Southwest Michigan Community

Action Agency.

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

on Saturday.

Please visit Y-Country's webpage for information on this year's event: Click Here.

 

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  • "Non-Perishable" food products (no "out of date/expired" items please!)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

  • Paper Products: toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissue, aluminum foil... ​
