Stuff the Bus

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 by Katy McElroy

The “Stuff the Bus” food drive is back the weekend of Dec. 8-10 to collect healthy, nonperishable food for those who need it over the holidays. A joint effort by Capital Metro, Whole Foods Market and the Central Texas Food Bank, this is the sixth year of the event. The theme this year is “There’s no place like hope for the holidays.” There’s even a fun promo video! Last year’s event raised the bar by far surpassing the 50,000-meal goal, therefore this year’s goal is 150,000 meals. To donate, look for Capital Metro buses parked at the Domain and downtown Whole Foods store locations from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. all weekend, and smaller Capital Metro vehicles at the Arbor Trails Gateway and Bee Cave locations on “select days,” according to the press release. In addition, all buses will collect monetary donations as well as food, and Santa Claus will make an appearance at both the Domain and downtown locations from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. No worries if you miss the bus; all Whole Foods Market locations will also be accepting donations until Dec. 14. You can also make donations online at
