A community effort is underway jointly with the United Way Suncoast, Publix, iHeartMedia and The School District of Manatee County to ‘Stuff The Bus.’ An event to benefit The Food Bank of Manatee, ‘Stuff The Bus’ will be presented by Mosaic and held at all 16 Manatee County Publix locations on Sunday, September 30, 2018 from 9am to 3pm. Customers will have the opportunity to make a food donation to help fill 16 school buses parked at Publix locations. All donations collected on Sunday will be distributed to The Food Bank of Manatee’s 115 agencies and food pantries in Manatee County. There are nearly 50,000 food insecure people, including 18,000 children living in Manatee County, according to the ALICE report.
