First Student is holding their annual “Stuff the Bus” event starting on November 28th at the Giant Eagle in Rices Landing and the Jefferson-Morgan High School. It is an event held to help collect any non-perishable food items in hand with the Jefferson-Morgan Food Pantry. The items will go towards helping the extra needy students have enough meals per day for a weekend!

Any shopper can donate any non-perishable food item by choice to the volunteer’s outside the store. For example some items would be; canned veggies, canned fruit, bags of rice or beans, fried fruits, tomato juice, peanut butter, any kind of pasta, spaghetti sauce, vienna sausages, and even boxed drinks or juices.

The food items that are donated will be collected and then stored on the bus, hence the name “Stuff the Bus.” After this event is over the Jefferson-Morgan Food Pantry then distributes the food to the families. This helps the students that don’t have enough food for the weekend have more than enough!
