Monday, December 12, 2016 @ 5:54 AM

Prince George ,B.C. – Starting tomorrow,    and through  to  the 15th,  riding on  a bus  in Prince George  may  only cost  you  a can of beans or maybe a package of pasta.

The  annual  Food for Fare program  will start tomorrow on  B.C. Transit buses in the city.

Instead of the regular fare,   you can board  by  dropping  a non  perishable food item in  a special collection box on the bus.

The food items collected over the course of the three days, will be donated to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

This is the 13th year  for the program.
