After a particularly challenging year, Capital Metro, Whole Foods Market and the Central Texas Food Bank are teaming up to make the season bright for our Central Texas neighbors in need. The ninth annual “Stuff the Bus” is going virtual this year, allowing you to make a contribution to help families across our region with just the click of a button.
Stuff the Bus donations are accepted from Thursday, December 10 to Thursday, December 24.
All donations will go to the Central Texas Food Bank, which distributed over 64 million pounds of food to Central Texans in Fiscal Year 2020. Just $5 helps feed a family of four for over three days. The food bank has seen an increased need for food in the Central Texas community. Just in October 2020, the food bank served approximately 113,776 households, which translates to nearly 6.1 million pounds of food. Over 13,500 of those households served used the food bank’s services for the first time.
“As always, our mission at Capital Metro is to give back to the community,” said Capital Metro President & CEO Randy Clarke. “Especially this year, we are thankful to partner with the Central Texas Food Bank and Whole Foods Market during the holidays in order to serve our community members who need our help the most.”
Head over to our website to make a donation online or purchase an item from the Stuff the Bus Amazon wishlist. To donate in person, visit one of the participating Whole Foods locations and look for registers with a “Feed4More” label.
Thank you for making the season brighter for our neighbors in need!
