Help Stuff an ART Bus Full of Food!

September 7, 2016

ART Bus at GiantAs 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, 10,818 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 on September 17 and 18 at two different Giant Food stores in Arlington, VA. Stop by, say hi and donate some food!

Stuff-a-Bus Events will be held:

Saturday, September 17 & Sunday, September 18

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

Giant Food Lyon Village -- 3118 Lee Hwy.

Giant Food Virginia Square -- 3450 Washington Blvd.

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.
