Kennedy Primary Academy held annual Stuff-a-Bus drive Friday

For the past few weeks, South Bend elementary students have put in a huge effort to fight hunger in our community.

Friday morning Kennedy Primary Academy held their fourth annual Spring Stuff-a-Bus. The goal is to gather as many canned and other food donations as possible for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.

Students and their classmates brought out dozens of boxes of food to fill the big red truck, and parents and volunteers helped organize and pack it all in. It's a team effort that's helped them to collect nearly 3,000 pounds of donations over the past three years.

“So, a lot of our kids not only collect at home,” explains Shelly Zabukovic a parent volunteer. “They go around their neighbors, ask their grandparents, extended family. And they bring in all these canned goods. And they realize then that goes back to the food bank which in turn goes back to the community."

They planned on having the truck fully packed by late afternoon. The class that donated the most items was rewarded with popcorn and a movie.
