Join BC Transit today to Stuff the Bus in support of the Mustard Seed Food Bank and Anawim House. The 15th annual Stuff the Bus is taking place at Tillicum Centre outside Save on Foods.

All donations are welcomed – from food to clothing, to cash. The goal is to have an entire bus full of donations that can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who most need a helping hand. 

Over the last 15 years, over $140,000 has been raised in support of local charities.

The Mustard Seed is looking for non-perishable food donations to feed 5,000 people a month, 1,600 of them children.

Cash donations give The Mustard Seed the ability to purchase what is most needed at a lower cost, from participating suppliers. For ideas on great donations for the Stuff the Bus event, The Mustard Seed has provided a great wish list.

Anawim House has been empowering people to embrace life since 1991, mainly through the provision of two core programs: drop-in and residential. Both are conducted within a safe and sober home where people can find hope and get assisted with their needs.

The programs offer various self-enriching programs pertaining to employment, life skills, art expression, life mapping, housing assistance and peer support.  As well, they provide basic referrals and necessities such as meals, showers, laundry facilities and free clothing.

Hot dogs and coffee provided by Save on Foods will be available for donation throughout the Stuff the Bus event.
