Unitrans and the Davis Food Co-op Give Back to the Community

“Stuff the Bus” Food Drive on Saturday, Dec. 7


(From press release) Unitrans and the Davis Food Co-op are proud to host the “Stuff the Bus” holiday food drive to support The Pantry, the University of California, Davis, an Associated Students of UC Davis (ASUCD) led organization that provides nonperishable, high-protein food for UC Davis students struggling to pay for meals.

A vintage Unitrans London double-decker will be on display at the Davis Food Co-op and volunteers will be receiving food donations from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St.

Children and adults alike are welcome to enjoy the view from the top deck of the bus as they drop off their donations. Donors will also be invited to spin a prize wheel for gifts provided by Unitrans and the Davis Food Co-op. Plus, 10-ride Unitrans tickets will be given to the first 50 donors.

All donations received will be delivered to The Pantry to assist those in need in our campus and city community. Foods that are needed include canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned meat, low-sugar cereal, peanut butter, whole grain pasta, rice, canned or dry beans, 100 percent fruit juice and shelf-stable milk.

Started in a living room in 1972, the Davis Food Co-op has grown into a full-service grocery store owned and operated by more than 10,000 households. The Davis Food Co-op showcases natural, organic and local foods, but strives to offer a full spectrum of groceries to serve our entire community. Unitrans, the public transit service for the city of Davis and UC Davis, has been serving the Davis community for more than 50 years, with a fleet of red buses that includes new and vintage double-deckers.
