Head on over to 6th and Bowie, on the back side of Whole Foods Market on Lamar, and help Capital Metro, Capital Area Food Bank and Whole Foods Market collect 20,000 pounds of food to feed the hungry.
Bring your non-perishable food items today through Sunday (Dec. 14-16), to the special “Stuff the Bus” bus parked at 6th and Bowie. Take pictures with the volunteer crew, check out the Christmas lights be-dazzling the bus, hear some live music, and get a super happy feeling in your heart for helping those in need.
The goal of the three-day event is to fill a full-size Capital Metro bus with 20,000 pounds of non-perishable food items, benefitting the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. According to the food bank, 20,000 pounds of food equates to approximately 16,000 meals to families in need throughout the community.
Donations are welcome anytime between 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Volunteers from all three organizations will be on hand to accept food items and load them onto the bus.
The food bank encourages donations of healthy, non-perishable food items, such as canned meats and tuna, canned vegetables, pasta, beans, healthy cereal and peanut butter. During the drive, participants may also purchase pre-packaged food donations at Whole Foods Market in $5, $10 and $20 increments.
Ride the bus over to Whole Foods via the following routes:
