‘Stuff the Bus’ This Weekend in McLean for Local Nonprofits

After the holiday rush of donations and food drives, supplies at food pantries can start to run dry. In an effort to combat the post-holiday slump, Fairfax County is hosting a Stuff the Bus event in McLean this weekend to support local nonprofit food pantries.

From 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m., a bus will be located outside the Giant at 1454 Chain Bridge Road. The food and money collected will go to benefit Share, Inc.

On Feb. 2, another Stuff the Bus event will be held at the Walmart in Tysons at 1500 Cornerside Blvd.

The Stuff the Bus event has been an annual tradition in Fairfax for nine years. According to the website, last year’s event:

  • Collected more than 250,000 lbs. of food

  • Provided 170,000 meals to those in need

  • Received nearly $50,000 in monetary contributions

  • More than 5,000 community volunteers have contributed approximately 15,000 hours of service

  • Aided more than 32 local food pantries in their winter food collections
