7th ANNUAL FILL THE BUS CAMPAIGN


From September 12 - 27, 2014 local Wegmans store locations in Corning, Elmira, Hornell, Ithaca & Johnson City collected donations for the Food Bank's BackPack Program. Fill The Bus is a community-wide food drive to collect non-perishable food items for children at risk of hunger across the Southern Tier. Wegmans stores will have wish lists available and in store signage to help shoppers purchase select items for the Food Bankís BackPack ProgramĀ. Donations will be collected inside Wegmans stores and transported to the Food Bank. All donations benefit the Food Bank's BackPack ProgramĀ and stay in the Southern Tier.

This year, a record amount of food was collected during the 7th Annual Fill The Bus Campaign!

The 2014 campaign brought in 90,198 pounds of donated food Ė a 40% increase over last year.

The Food Bank presented the staff of the Johnson City Wegmans with the award for most donations with more than 24,000 pounds of food for the BackPack Programô.
