Food Bank fundraiser stuff-a-bus returns to Sylvan Lake

Stuff-a-bus will occur on Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the three grocery stores in Sylvan Lake

Stuff-a-bus is returning to Sylvan Lake on Dec. 1 to gather as much food as possible for the Sylvan Lake Food Bank.

On Dec. 1, school busses will be parked outside of the three grocery stores in town, with the hopes of filling them to the brim.

Wayne Stade, a bus driver with with Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools, is helping to organize the day-long fundraiser once again.

The initiative has been running in Sylvan Lake for close to 20 years, and is organized by the bus drivers in the area.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Dec. 1, school busses will be parked at Sobeys, No Frills and Wal-Mart.

Last year this same event brought in roughly two full busses worth of food for the food bank. It was estimated roughly 100 pounds of food was brought in during last year’s event.

Food donations through the stuff-a-bus event should be dry or canned, non-perishable food items.

Last year, Sobeys made up packages that could be purchased for $5 or $10 which could be purchased at check-out for the event. State says he hopes to see those again at the stores.
