DART Launches “Stuff the Bus” Food Drive to Support Food Bank of DE June 22 – June 26

DART has announced their “Stuff The Bus” Food Drive in support of the Food Bank of Delaware’s COVID-19 relief efforts. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Food Bank of Delaware has distributed nearly 5 million pounds of food to residents in need. The food drive will be collecting non-perishable donations in support of those continuing efforts during this time of increased demand.
