DART’s holiday “Stuff the Bus” food drives have been so successful that the transportation agency will have its third spring version starting April 4.
All food donated at drop-offs in front of the two Safeway and ShopRite stores will be donated to the Food Bank of Delaware for distribution to those in need.
The drive comes as flood of holiday donations has eased and helps keep the Food Bank stocked with non-perishable food.
Among the items the Food Bank seeks are cereals such as Cornflakes, Cheerios and Raisin Bran; white or brown rice; spaghetti sauce; pasta; peanut butter; canned tuna (in water); canned salmon; canned chicken; 100% fruit and vegetable juices; corn muffin mix; canned beans; dry beans; soups; stews; canned vegetables; canned fruit; and granola bars.
The pickup spots will be:
Monday, April 4 — Safeway in Rehoboth, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tuesday, April 5 — Safeway in Dover, 9 a.m. to 4p.m.
Wednesday, April 6 — ShopRite of First State Plaza, 1600 W. Newport Pike, Wilmington, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thursday, April 7 — ShopRite of Brandywine Commons, 1300 Rocky Run Parkway, Wilmington 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
