Stuff-A-Bus seeks 11 tons of food in its 31st drive

By Steve Tarter - Journal Star


PEORIA — When the CityLink bus pulls up by the Kroger store on Lake Avenue Thursday, don’t expect a ride. This bus is hauling food, not passengers.

That’s when the city transit system kicks off the 31st annual Stuff-A-Bus campaign to help feed the hungry in this community.

The Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service, 800 NE Madison Ave., is once again the recipient for this year’s Stuff-A-Bus goal: 11 tons of food.


Other promotional events include:

--Attend the Nov. 10 Peoria Rivermen hockey game with a food donation and get a special Rivermen/Stuff-A-Bus T-shirt.

Stuff-A-Bus raises 10.3 tons of food for Friendship House

By Steve Tarter - Journal Star


PEORIA — CityLink’s Ron Cox had only one way to get out of the bus crammed with so much food that it filled the aisles. He climbed out the driver’s window.

The bus was at Peoria Friendship House, 800 NE Madison Ave., Tuesday morning for a presentation at the 31st annual Stuff-A-Bus campaign. Members of the Peoria Rivermen ice hockey team were on hand to unload the 10.3 tons of food collected for the agency’s food pantry.

Cox, a maintenance foreman, will retire next year after 38 years at the transit district. He was recognized with a plaque by CityLink general manager Doug Roelfs for having been involved with every Stuff-A-Bus campaign since the food drive was launched in 1987.
