Allegan County United Way’s Annual Stuff the Bus Food Drive is June 20-22

The 11th annual Stuff the Bus Food Drive will take place at participating grocery stores in Allegan County from June 20-22 as part of United Way’s global Day of Action. Food and personal care item donations collected during the drive will be delivered directly to local food pantries to help support the basic needs of local families. Stuff the Bus is organized by Allegan County United Way on behalf of the Allegan County Food Pantry Collaborative.

Food pantry supplies typically decrease during the summer months, since students who receive school breakfast and lunch through the National School Lunch Program depend on their families for all three meals. United Way’s Stuff the Bus Food Drive aims to help the food pantries keep their shelves stocked during these critical summer months.
