13th Annual 'Stuff the Bus' Food Drive Begins January 13

Stuff the Bus The buses are fueled and ready to roll as Stuff the Bus - the county’s post-holiday food drive, now in its 13th year - hits the road in the fight against hunger in Fairfax County.

Beginning Jan. 13, 2024, and continuing every Saturday through Feb. 17, 2024, a Fairfax County Fastran bus will visit local grocery stores to collect donated food and household items. Since launching in 2011, the campaign has collected more than 281,500 pounds of food to benefit local non-profit food pantries, resulting in 200,000 meals for those in need.

Statistics show the need for food is great, and demand only becomes more acute during the winter months. In Fairfax County, more than 68,141 residents live below the federal poverty level and almost 10,000 households with children access the federal SNAP program for food assistance.

Donation hours vary by location. See the full list of dates and locations below. See more details and a list of most-request items on the Fairfax County Stuff the Bus page.
