STUFF A BUS

Help us stuff a bus on November 16! A standard 40-foot bus can carry about 70 passengers, but how much food can it carry? Calgary Transit, Calgary Co-op and XL 103 FM are joining forces once again to collect donations for the Calgary Food Bank.

Help Calgarians facing food insecurity

Stuff a bus to feed YYC

Calgary Co-op, Calgary Transit and Stingray Radio Stations are once again joining forces for the 27th annual Stuff A Bus event. This year, Calgary Transit will have a bus parked outside of all 20 Calgary Co-op locations across the city. Volunteers from both Calgary Transit and the Calgary Food Bank will collect monetary and food donations in an effort to fill 40 feet of each bus with healthy, nutritious food.   

On Saturday November 16,  XL 103 will be live on location at the Crowfoot Co-op and AMP Radio will be live on location at the Auburn Bay Co-op to celebrate Stuff A Bus.

At the end of the day, dozens of Girl Guides and their friends help to unload the thousands of pounds of food to be transported to the Calgary Food Bank and distributed to Calgarians experiencing food insecurity.

“Every November for the past 26 years we’ve provided buses and volunteers for this special event. Dozens of Calgary Transit employees volunteer their time to support the Calgary Food Bank and give back to our community. It’s impressive to see how this event has grown from raising $3,000 to $10,000 worth of food and cash donations in the early years to raising over $218,000 in 2018. Stuff a Bus has become one of the largest single-day food drives for the Calgary Food Bank, and we are extremely proud to be part of this.”
