P&S Electric has donated $500 to Power the Pantry with Wheatland Electric. Their donation goes directly to the Community Food Bank of Barton County to help stock their shelves for the holiday season. 

Starting in 2014, Wheatland Electric has crammed their big red van with food donations for the communities they serve. This year, in lieu of traveling and hosting in-person events across the service territory, Wheatland has committed $50,000 total to 12 food banks that power the communities they serve. This includes supporting the Community Food Bank of Barton County alongside their partner P&S Electric. 

Wheatland Electric member P&S Electric has been serving the community’s electrical needs since 1989. They take pride in the high quality and professional service that they provide their customers. Supporting the needs of their community is a priority whether that is through their professional services or giving back. They are excited to stand alongside Wheatland Electric to Power the Pantry of the Community Food Bank of Barton County.

About Cram the Van 

Every fall since 2014, Wheatland Electric has hosted community gatherings, school competitions, and other events to collect donations for local food banks across our service territory.  The annual food drive is coined “Cram the Van” thanks to their signature fleet vehicle: a red, extended passenger van used to collect and deliver donations. 

Over the past nine years, and thanks to the generosity of the communities we serve, Wheatland has been able to facilitate the collection of more than 113 tons (226,908 lbs.) of food for local food banks across southwest and central Kansas. All contributions are always directed or delivered to the community food bank where the donations are made or specified for. For more information, visit
