Stuff the Bus Food Drive

There's No Place Like Hope for the Holidays!

Capital Metro, Whole Foods Market and the Central Texas Food Bank are working again to help those with the most need by hosting the 8th Annual “Stuff the Bus,” Dec. 6-8. Help us fill two CapMetro buses at the Downtown and Domain Whole Foods locations and help individuals and families throughout Central Texas have a happier holiday.

Here's how you can participate:

  • Dec. 6-8, bring your food donations from home or buy pre-packaged bags containing non-perishable items at the stores and drop them off inside Capital Metro buses at the Domain and Downtown Whole Foods stores. Buses will accept donations between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Drop off donations at the Capital Metro Transit Store weekdays between Nov. 22 and Dec. 11. The Transit Store is located in downtown Austin at 209 W. 9th St. and open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Make your donation online! Every $1 donated creates 4 meals for someone in need.

All proceeds benefit the Central Texas Food Bank, which provides 39 million meals to Central Texans each year.
