Donate food, ride bus for free

In exchange for canned goods and nonperishable food, Montgomery County residents can earn free bus rides this spring.

When people donate food April 11-17, Ride On will award them a free bus ride. Food collection bags will be near the fare boxes on buses. Any amount of food will be counted at the regular fare rate of $1.45.

Operators at all Ride On bus stops will also accept food from those who wish to donate but not ride the bus. Children's items such as diapers and formula will also be accepted.

Donations go to the Manna Food Center, which feeds 3,000 families a month.
