The Stuff the Bus food drive, aimed at helping restock local food pantries for the needy, will be in our area this Saturday.
The initiative is managed the Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services department and the Office of Public Private Partnerships with support from MV Transportation and local grocery stores. The public is asked to bring donated food to a Fastran bus parked at designated locations for distribution to lower-income families and individuals.
On Feb. 18, the bus will be in front of Shoppers at the 6360 Seven Corners Center, Falls Church, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Food brought to this location will go to the Falls Church Community Service Council.
The same day and times, the Stuff the Bus food drive will be at the Shoppers at Fair City Mall, 9622 Main St., Fairfax. Food brought here will be delivered to Our Daily Bread.
