BackPack Food

Fill the Bus


Now in it's 12th 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 1-15, 2018, customers can purchase child-friendly foods at their local Wegmans stores in Corning, Elmira, Hornell, Ithaca and Johnson City. Donations will support the Food Bank's BackPack Program and School Food Pantry pilot program.

Wegmans shoppers can purchase $3, $5 and $10 prepacked grocery bags at checkout. All donations benefit the Food Bank's BackPack and School Food Pantry Programs, and stay in the Southern Tier. Your donation will help us reach a goal of more than 65,000 pounds of food!
