Townsend Elementary School students in Appoquinimink School District partnered with DART and the Food Bank of Delaware to help "Stuff the Bus.”

The goal was to help the food drive meet their goal of collecting 20 tons of non-perishable food for Delawareans in the 20th year of partnering together for this event.

Townsend Elementary students did just that. They provided over 30 packed boxes to add to the food drive in just one week of food collection.

The Food Bank of Delaware is a nonprofit agency committed to ending hunger in Delaware. Through the Food Bank’s programs and networks of Hunger-Relief Partners 8.2 million meals were provided last year to more than 122,000 food insecure Delawareans across the state.
