Trailer Stuffed: Kossuth County Turns Out Big in Fundraiser for Food Pantry

The annul “Stuff the Trailer”Food drive that benefits the Kossuth County Food Pantry brought in over 5 tons of non-perishable food and personal care items to go along with over $47,000 in cash contributions Friday.

AK’s Chrome Kitchen and KLGA/KLGZ hosted the event in the Bomgaars parking lot this year, but area residents were able to find the new location easily and make their donations. When everything was tallied up, 10,318 pounds of groceries were collected along with $47,557 in cash for the Kossuth County Food Pantry. 

The “Stuff the Trailer” event has been held annually on the Friday before Thanksgiving since 2000.
