Stuff the Bus Event Set for Saturday in Herndon

Over the summer, Fairfax County has been holding several “Stuff the Bus” events throughout the county. The food collection partnership helps individuals who need support during the summer.

A local collection event will be held on Saturday, June 11, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Safeway (413 Elden Street).

According to last year’s Youth Results Survey, roughly 8 percent of Fairfax County Public School students reported going hungry in the past month due to lack of food at home. Nearly 30 percent of FCPS students receive free or reduced price lunches.

Other “Stuff the Bus” events are planned throughout the county.

The partnership is made possible with the help of Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services, Office of Public-Private Partnerships, MV Transportation, Giant, Safeway and other community partners.
