Stuff a Bus Food Drive to be Held Outside of BJC this Weekend

Penn State fans will have a chance to aid the hungry surrounding this weekend’s home football game against Temple.

Penn State athletics and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank are teaming up for the third annual Stuff a Bus Food Drive that will begin at noon on Friday and conclude at noon on Sunday.

The bus will be conveniently located outside of the Bryce Jordan Center, and thus adjacent to tailgating lots, where it will accept canned food donations.

The goal, according to a Penn State athletics press release, is to “Stuff a Bus” with 10,000 pounds of canned food products that will be distributed in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The release notes that 1.9 million people, or one in every five, in Pennsylvania are hungry, a number that’s on the rise. “More and more families are facing hunger in central PA,” said the Food Bank’s executive director Joe Arthur in the release. “Donations from the community, like the Stuff a Bus Food Drive, are essential for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank to continue to provide vital nutrition to the individuals and families seeking food assistance.”

Penn State students, Centre County residents, and visiting fans can drop off non-perishables for the food drive at the following locations:

  • Bryce Jordan Center
  • Medlar Field at Lubrano Park
  • Jeffrey Field
  • Central PA Convention and Visitors Bureau

Penn State (5-4) takes on Temple (5-4) a week after snapping its four-game losing streak in a battle against Indiana in Bloomington. Tailgate lots open a 7 a.m. for the game, which doubles as Military Appreciation Day.
