Sept. 22 - "Stuff the Bus" will benefit Valley Central students

On Saturday, Oct. 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Valley Central Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society will sponsor a “Stuff the Bus” event at the Dollar General on Route 17K, across the street from Valley Central High School, to benefit the district’s “Backpack Snack Attack” program.
 
The Backpack Snack Attack program provides approximately 100 Valley Central School District students with a bag full of non-perishable snacks each Friday afternoon to bring home. Students who participate in this program struggle with food insecurity, and the program helps to ensure that students in the district do not go hungry over the weekend. 
Valley Central Middle School’s National Honor Society organizes events throughout the year to benefit this important program. Donations of the following foods are appreciated: 
 
*Milk (non refrigerated boxes)
*Juice Box (100% juice)
*Cereal (small boxes)
*Quaker Oats Oatmeal (packages)
*Cup of Soup
*Chef Boyardee Cup
*Easy Mac
*Jello with Fruit inside (small containers)
*Applesauce (small containers)
*Mixed Fruit Cup
*Pudding Cup
 *Individually wrapped snacks (ie: pretzels, rice krispie treats, pop tarts, cheez its, chex mix, granola bars –no nuts, please!)
