“Stack the Semi” Food Drive donations made in honor of Wayzata’s teachers, counselors, staff,
2020 graduates and front-line workers will support west Hennepin County residents in need   

Plymouth, Minn. (May 28, 2020) - We Are Wayzata Strong (a community-based group of west metro neighbors, friends and the Wayzata High School Y.E.S Program) will host a food drive to supply the Food Shelf run by Plymouth-based human services nonprofit Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners.  The event will take place Thursday, June 11 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Wayzata High School parking lot.


For 40 years, Interfaith Outreach has served struggling families and individuals who live in eight west Hennepin County suburbs.  Each week, the Food Shelf serves over 250 households; 44% of those in need are children. COVID-19 has created job loss or reduction in pay for many families increasing the demand for food.

“In these challenging times, this is a great way to come out and support those in need” said Dan Schmidt member of the We Are Wayzata Strong organization.  “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, contributions and achievements.”
