Calgary Transit Stuff-a-Bus Food Drive 2010

How much food can we stuff into a Calgary Transit bus?

Calgary Transit is again teaming up with Calgary Co-op and XL103 in the 18th annual Stuff-a-Bus event in support of the Calgary Food Bank.

A Calgary Transit bus will be parked at all 21 Calgary Co-op locations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 20, with volunteers accepting grocery and cash donations for the Calgary Food Bank.

“We hope to fill our buses to the brim with non-perishable food and cash donations for the Food Bank,” said Calgary Transit spokesman Ron Collins.

As the holiday season approaches, the Calgary Food Bank is running low on essential supplies.

“This year has been particularly hard for people,” said Heidi Lambie, Development Coordinator for the Calgary Food Bank. “Our goal is to gather as many donations as possible to lessen the burden on individuals and families in need. Stuff a bus is one of the premier Food Bank fundraisers in Calgary and truly helps out community.”
