Prince George and BC Transit Implement 'Food for Fare'City of Prince George
PRINCE GEORGE - The City of Prince George will be implementing its “Food for Fare” program again this year in partnership with BC Transit. “Food for Fare,” a food drive for families in need, has been an annual tradition in the City for more than 10 years.
From December 13 to 15, 2017, passengers on BC Transit in Prince George can ride for free in exchange for one (or more) non-perishable food items.
“Groups such as the Salvation Army that provide necessities to the less fortunate require a great amount of support,” says Mayor Lyn Hall of Prince George. “The smallest donation can help an individual or family in need. This is one of the most important parts of the holiday season.”
On December 19, 2017, the mayor and members of City Council will help to deliver the proceeds to the Salvation Army’s Curt Garland Community Support Centre at 18th Avenue and Nicholson Street.
For information about routes and route schedules in Prince George, please contact BC Transit.
