What is Stuff the Bus?
For the past nine years, Stuff the Bus food drives have been held twice a year during times when donations often drop off – after the winter holidays and during the summer. Hosting drives during these critical times ensured that area nonprofits were able to meet the needs of hungry people in Fairfax County.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for food in our area, so Stuff the Bus is working to respond to the demand. In May, food drives were held on two days at 21 locations throughout Fairfax County. The response was immense, with 33.6 tons of food collected for area nonprofits.
On Saturday, September 12 and Saturday, September 26, buses will be parked from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to collect food donations. Buses will be located in less-frequented lots throughout the county, including the George Mason Regional Library and the Bailey's Upper Elementary School to allow donors to comply with social distancing recommendations.
