Annual "Stuff the Bus" food drive this Saturday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two local transit systems are teaming up with the San Diego Food Bank to help fight hunger this holiday season.

The Metropolitan Transit System and the North County Transit District will host the fifth annual "Stuff the Bus" food drive this Saturday, December 1.

Buses will be parked at 15 Albertson's locations throughout the county from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accept donations of non-perishable food items.

Last year, the "Stuff the Bus" drive collected more than seven tons of food. Organizers are hoping to collect even more this year.

"With the help of our partners and the community, we will make sure that struggling families will celebrate the holidays without wondering where their next meal will come from," Chris Carter of the San Diego Food Bank said.

The San Diego Food Bank feeds more than 350,000 San Diegans every month.
