It's almost time to Fill the Bus again for Christmas.
This year's Fill the Bus 12-hour food drive, led by The Hits, with support from the Rotorua Daily Post, will take place next Wednesday, December 6.
Bay of Plenty Regional Council and Reesby's have again donated the use of a bus for the day, which will make its way around the city collecting non-perishable food items.
All items collected will go towards the Rotorua Daily Post Salvation Army Foodbank Christmas Appeal, which aims to restock the organisation's foodbank in time for Christmas and 2018.
Salvation Army Rotorua Lieutenant Kylie Overbye said last year Fill the Bus was a fantastic day, with 4298 food items worth more than $8000 donated.
"The whole team is excited about getting on board this year.
"It's a great opportunity to meet the community and hear people's stories."
The bus will stop in at 16 locations, including schools, supermarkets and local businesses over the 12 hours it is on the road.
The confirmed schedule will be released soon and will be published in the Rotorua Daily Post and at rotoruadailypost.co.nz.
