Bemidji Community Food Shelf, Market Place Foods, The Bemidji Pioneer and Paul Bunyan Broadcasting announce the 22nd annual Stuff a Truck food drive. Stuff a Truck is the largest single food drive of the year. Last year over 15,000 pounds of much needed grocery items were donated, along with over $4,000 in cash donations.
