Fill the Bus is Back!

Fill the Bus is community-wide food drive to collect non-perishable food items for children at risk of hunger across the Southern Tier. This June, customers can give 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 Center program.
Wegmans shoppers can give $3, $5, or any amount at checkout. All gifts benefit the Food Bank’s BackPack and School Food Center Programs and stay in the Southern Tier. Your gift will help us in our mission to build and sustain hunger-free communities throughout the Southern Tier.
