Kossuth County Steps Up for those in Need

–The 22nd annual “Stuff the Trailer” food-drive to benefit the Kossuth County Food Pantry was another huge success on Friday. 

Area residents stepped up to help those families in need this holiday season. Just over 11,000 pounds of non-perishable food and personal items were donated, with many businesses, schools and groups helping the cause by collecting items on their own and bringing them down in bulk. 

To go along with all the food items, nearly $45,000 was collected for the food pantry to use in purchasing items they need. The final tally ended up being $44,496.50, a total that makes up the bulk of what the food pantry will collect in donations all year. 

The event was hosted by AK’s Chrome Kitchen and featured live broadcasts throughout the day on KLGA 92.7 FM. The 23rd annual event will be held on Friday, November 17th of 2023.
