WHY:  The 30th Anniversary Celebration of the Stuff-A-Bus food drive for the Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service officially begins on Friday, October 27 at 10:00 a.m. with a press conference at the Kroger store located at 801 W. Lake Avenue in Peoria.  Representatives from CityLink, the Peoria Friendship House and Kroger will be on hand to kick off the 30th  annual food drive.  During the press conference, it will be announced that the goal this year is to collect 10 tons of food.
 
To celebrate this milestone anniversary of Stuff-A-Bus, 30 families/individuals who are currently using or have used the services provided by the Peoria Friendship House will be featured on the official Stuff-A-Bus Facebook page (www.facebook.com/stuffabuspeoria) throughout the duration of the campaign.
 
For the past 30 years, CityLink has hosted the Stuff-A-Bus food drive to help eliminate hunger in Peoria.  With a long partnership with Kroger to collect enough food to stuff a classic CityLink bus, the donations collected during the annual food drive benefit the food pantry at the Peoria Friendship House.  Since January of this year, the Peoria Friendship House food pantry has provided approximately 54,000 meals to families and individuals who are dealing with hunger in Peoria.
 
Also participating as longtime partners in the Stuff-A-Bus food drive are Cumulus Radio, WYZZ Fox 43, WMBD CBS 31, CIPROUD.com, and the Amalgamated Transit Union #416.
 
Donations will be collected at all Peoria Kroger locations and the Kroger store in East Peoria from October 27 to November 27.  The final tonnage of food collected during the campaign will be announced at a press conference on November 28 at the Peoria Friendship House.
