Stuff a Bus brings in record haul for Calgary Food Bank

This year’s Stuff-a-Bus event that was held at all 20 Calgary Co-op stores broke records for the annual event hosted by Calgary Transit, Calgary Co-op and XL 103 FM radio station.

Over $162,000 was raised in food and cash donations for the Calgary Food Bank.

“The efforts of employees have assisted in another very successful 'Stuff a Bus' campaign,” said Ron Collins of Calgary Transit and City spokesman for the event. “This is Calgary Transit’s way to assist the community and to ensure that no one goes hungry during the holidays.”

Of course, even if you didn’t get a chance to help stuff a bus, you still have time plenty of opportunity to show your generosity

The Mayor’s Food Drive is still in full force. You can drop off donations to any sponsor locations, including the Mayor’s Office and in the Municipal Building atrium. All donations go to the Calgary Food Bank to support Calgarians in need.
