Stuff The Bus presented by Mosaic
Inflation and higher costs of living has caused food-insecurity in our community to skyrocket. The Food Bank of Manatee, a PLUS program of Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee, has been the leading, local source of nutrition in Manatee County since 1985. As the only food bank based in Manatee County, we need your help to Stuff the Bus this year! 100% of the proceeds and food collected will stay in Manatee County.
Volunteer information details coming soon.
