Ride On Food Drive
Ride On is sponsoring its 30th annual Give and Ride Food Drive from April 24 to 30. During this time, Ride On customers who donate a canned or nonperishable food item will receive a free bus ride. All donations go to the non-profit Manna Food Center, which distributes food to the County’s neediest residents. Healthy, single-serve, kid-friendly food items in plastic containers are especially in demand, as are baby food, formula, toddler food, juice and diapers.
All food donations, whether one or more cans, will be valued at the regular fare rate of $1.75. An additional donation is required when transferring to other buses. Residents who do not ride the bus but wish to donate food can participate by giving their donations to a bus operator at any Ride On bus stop. Checks made out to Manna Food Center will also be accepted.
