UMass Transit Services hosts second-annual Food Bus Drive

The University of Massachusetts Transit Services has announced that it will sponsor its second-annual Food Bus Drive beginning Nov. 30.

Collection bins will be placed near the front of all UMass Transit Services buses, and will remain there between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Food donations must be canned goods or other non-perishable food items.

All proceeds will be donated to the Amherst Survival Center.

The donation drive began last year when UMass bus drivers came up with the idea. They collected some 350 pounds in 2008, according to a UMass news and media relations press release.

The Survival Center has been in existence since 1976, offering a variety of programs to give residents what the group’s site calls “basic needs.”

The center’s free services include a food pantry, a soup kitchen, a drop-in health clinic, a free store and other basic functions. The organization’s site says the center serves more than 3,000 people a year.

The drive ends Dec. 18. The Amherst Survival Center is located at 1200 North Pleasant Street for those interested in donating or volunteering.
