Leevers Foods is currently running a â€śstuff a truckâ€ť promotion, which started Nov. 5 and lasts through Nov. 25.
The promotion is an effort to collect nonperishable food for the Barnes County Food Pantry.
Rick Idland, general manager, said, â€śThis is such a caring community, and thereâ€™s so much need out there.â€ť
â€śI know everyone is doing their parts,â€ť he said, citing the Valley City Parks and Recreationâ€™s food drive at Ruckus at the Rec along with local car dealersâ€™ â€śstuff the trunkâ€ť promotions.
â€śA big hand goes out to Ingstad Family Media, the Times-Record, the local schools and MarketPlace Foods for securing foods for the less fortunate,â€ť Idland said. â€śWe at Leevers are just a small part of that helping hand.â€ť
Everyone who brings in nonperishable items will get a registration form to win Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers tickets for the Dec. 30 noon game. People can register anytime they bring an item, â€śso bring lots and enter often,â€ť Idland encouraged.
Donations can be dropped off at Leeverâ€™s Foods until Nov. 25. Theyâ€™ll bring the collections to the Barnes County Food Pantry Nov. 26.
Leevers Foods recently switched to Nash Finch Company as its distributer, and all seven Leeverâ€™s stores throughout the state are joining in a wide effort to collect as much nonperishable items for the local food banks in their communities.
