Stuff A Bus

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 join forces each November to collect donations for the Calgary Food Bank.

Help Calgarians facing food insecurity

Stuff a bus to feed YYC

On Saturday, November 16, 2019, Calgary Co-op and Calgary Transit joined forces for the annual Stuff A Bus campaign. Calgary Co-op store management and staff prepped the stores by building and displaying hundreds of $10 pre-packaged donation kits. On event day, Calgary Transit parked a bus outside of each Co-op location in Calgary. Volunteers from Calgary Transit and the Calgary Food Bank collected monetary and food donations in an effort to fill all 40 feet of the bus with healthy, nutritious food.

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

Thanks to the generous spirit of Calgarians the 2019 campaign raised $302,540.58 in food and funds. Together, we fight hunger and its root causes because no one should go hungry.

“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.”
