Help stuff a bus and get free Komets tickets

Steve Corona with Community Harvest holds jars of peanut butter at a CampusLink Bus Stuff event. The food bank is asking for jars of peanut butter because it’s a good source of protein and it’s frequently requested.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The Community Harvest Food Bank and For Wayne CitiLink have partnered together for more than a decade for its annual Bus Stuff. Now in its 11th year, the Bus Stuff is offering free tickets to a Komets game with the donation of either a jar of peanut butter or two cans of any food.

The goal is for the community to donate enough food to fill a CampusLink bus to benefit people served by Community Harvest Food Bank.

Peanut butter is a frequently requested at the food bank, which supplies about 250,000 pounds of food to the community per week. It’s a high valued item because it’s high in protein.

“We’ll take any can [of food], but we’ll really appreciate jars of peanut butter,” Community Harvest Resource Development Officer Steve Corona said. “There is a high demand for food. Our job is relentless in encouraging all sectors of the community to be a part of what we are doing.”

The various food items can be brought to four different locations from April 6 to April 12 in exchange for two tickets to a Komets game on either April 8 or April 11.

The CampusLink Bus Stuff collection barrels can be found at the following places:

  • CampusLink office or central station
  • Community Harvest Food Bank
  • IPFW Ketler and Walb information desk or student housing
  • Ivy Tech Coliseum, North and South campus information desks

Canned food and cash will be accepted at the hockey games on Wednesday April 8 and Saturday April 11.
