BackPack Food

Fill the Bus


Now in it's 9th year, 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. From September 9 - 24, 2016, customers can puchase child-friendly foods at their local Wegmans stores in Corning, Elmira, Hornell, Ithaca & Johnson City for the Food Bank's BackPack Program. 

Wegmans will have wish lists available and in-store signage to help shoppers purchase select items for the Food Bank’s BackPack Program. Donations will be collected inside Wegmans stores, with the goal of filling a big yellow school bus, and transported to the Food Bank. All donations benefit the Food Bank's BackPack Program and stay in the Southern Tier.
