Ride On’s ‘Give & Ride’ Food Drive Offers Free Rides to Those Who Donate Food for Needy Families

Ride On bus passengers can help residents in need and receive a free bus ride by donating canned or nonperishable food during Ride On’s annual food drive. Riders who donate will ride free during Give and Ride from Sunday, April 6, through Saturday, April 12. Food collection bags will be placed near the fare boxes on all Ride On buses.

The donated food goes to Manna Food Center, Montgomery County's food bank.

Canned and non-perishable foods are acceptable but not those in glass containers. Healthful foods, such as whole grains and low-salt or low-sugar items, are appreciated.

More details about Give and Ride are available on the County’s website or visit the Division of Transit Services’ website.
