Every year in November, Metcalfe's partners with NBC 15 & Second Harvest of Southern Wisconsin for Stuff-A-Semi food drive in the parking lot of the Metcalfe's Hilldale store.
We park a semi in our round-a-about and our volunteers are out there from 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. for three days straight collecting food for the less fortunate in Southern Wisconsin.
In the store, we offer pre-packaged Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Bags that can be purchased to feed a family as well as a “cash cart” where you can make a monetary donation. Our vendors and distributors purchase pallets of food, donate products that they represent, or donate goods and services, which Metcalfe's converts into a food donation for Second Harvest.
In 2008, Metcalfe's collected enough food to provide 133,507 meals to the less fortunate in the greater Madison community!
