ETS Stuff a Bus banner

Along with its partners, ETS has operated the annual Stuff a Bus campaign since 1995. Each year, in late November or early December, an ETS bus visits Save-On-Foods locations in Edmonton, where volunteers collect non-perishable food donations for Edmonton's Food Bank. In 2016, 25,669 kilograms of food and $19,846 in cash were collected from participating Save-On-Foods, transit centres and on the LRT.

Since its inception, the ETS Stuff a Bus campaign has collected over 434,000 kilograms of food and $413,000 in cash donations to help feed Edmontonians in need. The ETS Stuff a Bus campaign also supports the Strathcona Food Bank (with Strathcona County Transit) and Parkland Food Bank.

ETS thanks all of its partners and the Edmonton community for their generosity in helping drive out hunger.

Drive out hunger from our community during the 23rd annual ETS Stuff a Bus campaign from November 29 to December 2, 2017. Look for ETS buses parked in front of your favourite Edmonton Save-On-Foods store and donate non-perishable food items to support Edmonton’s Food Bank.

Edmonton’s Food Bank needs your support. There is a low supply for high demand items to provide Edmontonians a warm meal this holiday season.

High demand items include:

  • canned soups
  • baby formula
  • canned meat/fish
  • beans with/without pork
  • small jars of peanut butter
  • canned fruit/vegetables
  • pasta and pasta sauce
