Stuff the Bus will be at Annandale Giant Feb. 1

There’s always lots of volunteers lending a hand to our neediest residents during the holiday season, but donations to food pantries tend to drop off after the new year.

That’s why the Fairfax County Stuff the Bus campaign is so important. A Fastran bus will be at various locations throughout the county over the next few weekends to collect food for local food pantries.

On Saturday, Feb. 1, the bus will be at the Annandale Giant, at 7137 Columbia Pike, 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. As you shop for groceries, pick up a few extra items for the needed. Food donated by the public will be distributed to local families by volunteers with Annandale Christian Community for Action.

The Stuff the Bus campaign, now in its fourth year, is a partnership of the Fairfax County government, local grocery stores, and nonprofits to serve the growing population of households that don’t have access to healthy food on a regular basis.
