LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The bus is stuffed thanks to a unique partnership between two community organizations.
CityBus and Food Finders Food Bank tried to "Stuff the Bus" Wednesday afternoon to kick off Hunger Action Month.
It was the first year for the partnership between the two groups. Organizers called it a big success.
"We've actually raised a lot of donations. Looks to be about 200 pounds in the bus. We filled up almost every seat in the bus, so it's really, really exciting," said Amy Gaulke, Food Finders Assistant Director of Marketing & Development.
Despite Wednesday's successful event, Gaulke said people still need to be aware of how many hungry people there are in the community. She said there are 86,000 people in their service area who are considered food insecure.
