The Loveland Schools Transportation Department has launched a District-wide initiative to benefit Loveland children. 

The goal of “Stuff-a-Bus” is to collect a school bus full of fun, healthy and kid-friendly foods through donations to support children in need throughout the Loveland community.

“We want to challenge our Tiger staff and families to help us fill a whole school bus with food for kids,” says Lisa Simpson, student support staff and member of the Loveland
City School District Transportation Department. “We’re looking for individual portion, shelf-stable foods that kids can prepare and eat on their own, fostering their independence and self-reliance.”

Delivery to the L.I.F.E. Food Pantry is targeted for Saturday, October 6. Donations can be sent with students to school or dropped off at any Loveland school campus.

Suggested food items:

Chicken and tuna pouches

Deviled ham, Spam pouch and Vienna Sausages

Peanut butter

Fruit cups

Applesauce cups or pouches

Raisins and Craisins boxes
