Stuff the Bus on Saturday to help residents who need food

Lake Cares Food Pantry.

Lake County employees and volunteers are chipping in to help residents in need.

The 12th Annual Stuff the Bus food drive is scheduled from 9am-5pm Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Publix supermarket at 2840 David Walker Drive, Eustis.

Lake County Transit Division staff and volunteers will collect nonperishable food to be stuffed inside a Lake County Connection bus. The food gathered during the campaign will be donated to the Lake Cares Food Pantry in Mount Dora, directly helping those in the local community, a news release states.

Nonperishable food items accepted for donation include canned meats, vegetables, fruits, stews and chili, canned or dry soups, canned or packaged pasta, peanut butter, tea bags and ground coffee, hot and cold cereals, rice, cake and pancake mixes, syrup, powdered milk, juice boxes, granulated sugar, baby food and formula, granola and cereal bars, and dry or canned pet food.
