WOW! Stuff the Bus was amazing! Thanks to all involved. Our friends at iheartmedia, Joe Daily (Check out Joe’s Blog~ and Chris Marino, Party Marty, Tom Sipos and everyone there who helped make Stuff the Bus such a huge success! Thanks to all the volunteers who stuffed and Unstuffed the buses. The 17th Annual Stuff the Bus raised more than 20,000 lbs of food!

This year the focus was on the Food Bank’s BackPack Program!
The mission of the BackPack Program is to help alleviate child hunger in America by providing hungry children with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends. The program provides bags filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable, and easily-consumed. Bags are discreetly distributed to participating children on Friday afternoons.

Here are just some of the items that help fill the Back Packs.
