Food for Fare returns to Prince George

BC Transit and the City of Prince George are encouraging customers to pay their fare in non-perishable food items between December 7 and 9.

Food for Fare will see collection boxes on buses across the Prince George transit system, allowing passengers to forgo the usual cash fare for a donation to the Salvation Army instead.

“We are really excited to partner with the City of Prince George to bring back the Food for Fare event. It’s a great way for our customers to give back to the community and ride the bus for free,” said Lindsay Taylor, BC Transit Manager of Government Relations for Northern BC. “For those who have never used the Prince George Transit System, this is a great opportunity to hop on the bus with a food donation and give it a try.”

“Food for Fare is a great Prince George tradition that I’m happy to see return for another year,” said Mayor Simon Yu. “The holiday season is not just about gift-giving and parties, but also about charity towards friends, neighbours, and our community. Every donation to our local Salvation Army and food bank makes a big difference for families in need at this time of year.”
