What is “Stuff this Bus?”

Every year, Good Measure Food Bank in collaboration with First Student Canada host “Stuff this Bus!”

Stuff this Bus is a fundraising event where we park a school bus in front of our building and “stuff” it with donations of school supplies and non-perishable food items. This event aims to assist youth and families in need within Peel by providing them easy access to food as well as school supplies needed for a successful education. We want to ensure students are able to go to school prepared for a successful school year!

This event features live music, food, games, sports, a bouncy castle and more to be announced!  Check our our Facebook page for the latest announcements!
