‘Stuff the Bus’ in 5th Annual Holiday Food Drive

StuffTheBus_Flyer(From press release) Unitrans and the Davis Food Co-op are calling on the community to contribute to “Stuff the Bus,” a holiday food drive that is also asking for a few other of life’s necessities this year. Donations will go to the student-run Pantry at the University of California, Davis. The Pantry, a unit of the Associated Students of UC Davis, aims to ensure students in need don’t miss a meal or go without other basic necessities while trying to stay in school.

Look for the vintage Unitrans London double-decker bus on display in the parking lot of the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St., from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 11 where volunteers will be receiving food donations. For donors’ convenience, the Davis Food Co-op will offer prepacked bags of groceries and other items — bags you can buy at the checkout stands, and staff will deliver the bags to the bus.

Children and adults alike are welcome to enjoy the view from the top deck of the bus as they drop off their donations. The first 50 donors will receive Unitrans passes good for 10 free rides.

The Pantry provided this list of suggested donations: new shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bars of soap, and other personal hygiene items; canned or boxed meals; gluten-free grains like quinoa; canned fruit and vegetables; canned or dry beans; canned soup; baby formula; rice; whole grain pasta — and please don’t forget the peanut butter and similar items.

Starting 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. It showcases natural, organic and local foods, but strives to offer a full spectrum of groceries to serve the 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.

Notice that the bus has features of a reindeer? Notice that Hanukkah is long over by the time this even happens? There is Christmas, only. What is wrong with us? Bring back the "Christmas Bus"!! Or there should be a new term for a holiday period from western Christian-pagan new year to Gregorian new year. This is even worse than the City's "Holiday Tree" because it connects with donation of surplus and unwanted food to fellow students and citizens.
