Lake County to host 15th Annual Stuff the Bus food drive

Lake County will be hosting the 15th Annual Stuff the Bus Food Drive on Saturday, Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Publix super market, located in the Tavares Crossroads at 2042 State Road 19, Tavares.
Over the last 14 years, Lake County Transit staff and volunteers have collected more than 60,000 pounds of food for those in need. This year, the County is seeking donations of nonperishable food to be stuffed inside a Lake County Connection bus. All food donations will benefit the Lake Cares
Food Pantry in Mount Dora. Lake Cares is a not for profit 501 (c)(3) organization serving poor to middle-class families, seniors and individuals with disabilities.
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.
