The food drive began more than 25 years ago and its founder, former student Jim Szilva still takes part in the drive with his former high school.  The school also teams up with Q92 and KISS 105.3 to Stuff a Bus full of food. The radio stations also broadcasted live from the school parking lot on the bus all week.
