ETS Stuff a Bus adapts to support Edmonton’s Food Bank

Edmonton is a caring community where neighbours support each other. One way to continue to support others is through the Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) Stuff a Bus campaign, back for its 26th year. This year’s campaign runs from November 25-29.
Due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases, and to minimize any person to person contact, in-person donation options on buses, LRT and cruisers are cancelled for this year’s campaign. However, the need to give is not cancelled and there is still significant need to support Edmonton’s Food Bank this holiday season. This year, there are multiple ways to provide monetary donations, including:

  • donating $2, $5, $10 or more at the checkout counter at Save-On-Foods
  • donating online via Edmonton’s Food Bank website and selecting ETS Stuff a Bus under “Fund” (minimum of $3 for online donations)
  • texting FEEDYEG to 20222 to donate $10 or $20.

A $2.62 contribution can provide one meal to one person, which can be covered by one online donation.
Those who prefer to donate non-perishable food items, please place donations in the bins for Edmonton’s Food Bank at Save-On-Foods locations. High demand items for Edmonton’s Food Bank include pasta/pasta sauce, canned soups, canned fruits and vegetables, canned fish and meat, baby formula, school snacks, as well as small peanut butter jars.
The ETS Stuff a Bus campaign started in 1995 and has partnered with Save-On-Foods to support Edmonton’s Food Bank. Since inception, this campaign has grown into one of the largest annual third-party fundraising campaigns to support Edmonton’s Food Bank.For more information:edmonton.ca/stuffabus
