Residents “Stack the Semi” to Help Plymouth Food Shelf
Community members who lost jobs and need food won’t go hungry thanks to a local community group. We Are Wayzata Strong, a group of west metro neighbors, friends and students from the Wayzata High School Y.E.S. Program, hosted a “Stack the Semi” food drive on Thursday.
Organizers said demand for food continues to increase because COVID-19 has created job loss or reduction in pay for many families.
“Our goal is to #STACKTHESEMI in honor of our front-line community members, educators, school district staff and our 2020 graduates for their tireless work,” said Dan Schmidt, a member of We Are Wayzata Strong.
In just one hour of the food drive, the group loaded 5 pallets of donations in the truck. The goal was to fill the truck up with 25 pallets.
“I think most of us are relatively fortunate in the community but there’s a lot of people in need right now and we just want to help,” said Jason Luedtke, a member of We Are Wayzata Strong.
