Stuff a Truck 2013

Twin City Subaru & 802 Toyota Scion are thrilled to return as hosts for Frank FM's 12 annual Stuff a Truck event, which will be held right here next to the Berlin Mall from

November 21 - 23, 2013 at Twin City Subaru & 802 Toyota Scion.

Frank FM's TJ Michaels and Froggy's JD Green again invite Vermonters to come and "Stuff the Truck" with canned foods, non perishables and monetary donations to help fellow Central Vermonters in need. Donations can be brought right to the truck any time of day during the event, and pre-event food drives at your office or school are encouraged as well!

The radio show hosts will stay outside and brave the elements 24 hours a day until the truck is full, which will be quite the task this year! This 12th annual food and funds drive aims to break last year's record and raise more than $12,000 and 18 tons of food.

It's critical support for the local Salvation Army's Emergency Food Shelf, which needs your help now more than ever.

A few quick facts about hunger in Vermont:

 
  • The Salvation Army reaches over 10,000 Vermonters, and counting.
  • Families seeking food assistance locally is up 115% over the last two years.
  • According to the USDA, 1 in 5 Vermont children are hungry.
  • 13% of Vermont households are struggling with hunger or "food insecurity."
  • 8,200 Vermonters will access a food shelf in Vermont this week.
  • As of Nov. 1, 2013 Vermonters suffered more cuts to the 3 Squares Program.

Over the last 11 years, Stuff a Truck has raised a total of 152 tons of food and $100,000 of monetary donations. But we can't do this alone. We need your help! Together we can fight hunger to meet our 2013 goal of over 18,000 pounds of food and $12,000 for Vermonters in need.

We hope you will, along with your friends, family, and associates, take a few minutes to pick up a couple items from the store, clean your pantry of unwanted non-perishable foods, or stop by to make a financial donation to this important cause.


The following items are excellent, non-perishable choices for Stuff a Truck donations:

  • Canned fish-tuna, salmon, sardines, etc.
