From Sunday, June 21 through Saturday, July 4, Wegmans Food Market stores will hold a two-week “Fill the Bus” food drive to support local food banks’ increased summer needs. Customers are invited to help “Fill the Bus” by donating items that provide healthy meals for children when they do not have access to free or reduced-price meals at school.
Customer service desks at the 14 participating stores will post wish lists of non-perishable items that are intended to be nutritious and easy to prepare, like tuna fish, peanut butter, and canned soup. Products to donate will also be displayed by the registers and can be purchased at checkout and then placed in the “Fill the Bus” collection bin located by the front of the store.
Donations at the Alexandria store will be collected and transported to the Capital Area Food Bank.
