Food for Fare Returns

Monday, December 14, 2015 @ 3:50 AM

Prince George, B.C. –  As of tomorrow,  transit in Prince George  will  offer  its “Food for Fare’ program.

December 15th through the 17th,  passengers can board  for no cash cost, if they make a donation of at least one non-perishable food item.

The program   has been   in place at this time of the year for  more than a decade.

On December 21, the food gathered through the program will be delivered to the Salvation Army’s Curt Garland Community Support Centre at 18th Ave. and Nicholson St.

“Groups such as the Salvation Army that provide necessities to the less fortunate require a great amount of support,” says Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall . “The smallest donation can help support an individual or family in need. This is one of the most important parts of the holiday season.”

You can also expect some  changes  to transit service over the holidays.  Here is the holiday schedule:

  • December 24 – regular weekday service until 7:00pm
  • December 25 – no service
  • December 26 – no service
  • December 27 to 30 – regular service
  • December 31 – regular weekday service, plus free rides from 7:00pm until 3:00am.
  • January 1   – no service
  • January 2   – regular service
