Stuff the Truck brought in 852 pounds of food

The Polson Loaves and Fish Pantry and all its volunteers, staff, and clients would thank St. Joseph Medical Center and Polson High School for their joint effort from the Pirate Football Game with Stuff the Truck.

St. Joseph Medical Center paid for entry to the football game if people attending brought two cans of food to the game. With their efforts they delivered to the pantry a total of 852 pounds of canned goods to be distributed to our clients.

We are amazed and so thankful for all the support everyone gives to our food pantry for our clients. Their donations of food help us help people with food insecurity.

We thank all of you for your efforts to support your community. All donations go to supporting our clients with the food they need. We are completely a volunteer organization. Our hope someday is that no one suffers from food insecurity, and no one goes hungry no matter what age they are.

We would also like to remind everyone that the Town Pump Challenge will continue until Nov. 30. Any donations made to the Polson Loaves & Fish Pantry up to $15,000 will be matched by the Town Pump. As of Oct. 25, donations totaled $9,555. We still need $5,445 to make our match.

This is the largest fundraiser of the year for all the pantries of Montana, and with the help of the Town Pump Organization, whose support has carried us through many years good and bad, we say thank you!
