Fairfax County will be collecting food for needy families as part of the annual Stuff the Bus drive.

Collections will be taken at 13 locations from Jan. 18 to Feb. 17. The program is a collaborative effort by Fairfax County government, local grocery stores, and nonprofits to fill up area food pantries.

According to county officials, 47,000 Fairfax County Public School students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. Twelve percent of children under 18 years old report food insecurity.

Each week, a bus will park at a different location to collect food donations. All donation hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The bus will be parked in Fairfax, Herndon, Clifton, Lorton, Annandale, Oakton, McLean, Falls Church, Springfield and Alexandria.

Check out the interactive map above released by Fairfax County for specific addresses.
