"Stuff the Bus" food drive collects 13.1 tons of food

DART’s annual “Stuff the Bus” Thanksgiving Food Drive brought in 13.1 tons or 26,201 pounds of food this year.

That topped last year’s total by about 3 tons, filling three 30-foot buses with non-perishable food. 

The Food Bank of Delaware will now distribute the donated food through its Hunger Relief Partners to Delaware residents in need of food assistance. 

The week-long food drive took place from November 11th to November 16th at various spots across the First State. This was the drive’s 22nd year.
