Our standard 40-foot buses can hold about 70 people, but how much food can it hold? We’ll find out on November 3 at our annual Stuff a Bus event!
On Saturday, November 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. you’ll find a Calgary Transit bus parked outside every Calgary Co-op location in the city. We’re asking Calgarians to stuff the buses full of non-perishable food donations and cash to support the Calgary Food Bank.
In partnership with Calgary Co-op, AMP 90.3 and XL 103 radio, this is Calgary Transit’s 26th annual Stuff-a-Bus event. Since 1993 we’ve raised over $2 million in cash and food donations for the Calgary Food Bank.
The food and funds you generously donate will go a long way to help families and individuals in need. With the recent downturn in the economy, the Calgary Food Bank has experienced a huge increase in demand. Stuff-a-Bus is one of Calgary’s largest single-day food drives and we can make a huge impact.
Volunteers will be on site to accept non-perishable food items and provide tax receipts for cash donations. Co-op has pre-packaged food hampers for sale, or you can check out the Calgary Food Bank’s wish list of the most needed items.
