Help Stuff an ART Bus Full of Food Donations!

September 9, 2015

As part of Hunger Action Month in September, Arlington Transit and its operator, National Express, will partner with the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) and Giant Foods to take action against hunger by challenging the community to “stuff an ART bus” full of non-perishable food items.

Last year, more than 4,700 pounds of food was collected over a three day period and donated to AFAC. With the community's help, we hope to beat that total this year! Stuff-a-Bus events will be held during two weekends this month at three different Giant Food stores in Arlington, VA. Stop by, say hi and donate some food!

Stuff-a-Bus Events will be held:

Stuff a Bus Event

Friday, September 11 - Sunday, September 13

10 am - 6 pm (until 4 pm on Sunday)

Giant Foods at Virginia Square -- 3450 Washington Blvd.

Giant Foods at Shirley Park -- 2901 S Glebe Rd

Saturday, September 26 - Sunday, September 27

10 am - 6 pm (until 4 pm on Sunday)

Giant Foods at Lyon Village -- 3118 Lee Hwy

All of the food collected will be donated to the AFAC who will distribute it to the more than 2,200 families a week who rely on AFAC for free supplemental groceries.
