It's an annual tradition to go grocery shopping the weekend before Thanksgiving and find Central Valley School District students there asking for food donations for their annual Fill the Bus food drive. Saturday is the seventh annual drive and 100 students are expected to be in position from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Students will be collecting turkeys, gravy, stuffing, canned vegetables, soups, peanut butter and more. The donations will be passed along to the Spokane Valley Partners Food Bank.
Participating stores include the Fred Meyer at Sullivan and Sprague, the Liberty Lake Safeway, the Safeway at Sprague and Evergreen, the Trading Company at Sprague and McDonald and the Albertson's on 32nd Ave. Click here for more details on which schools will be staffing each store.

There’s so much to check out in today’s Valley Voice that you might as well pour a cup of coffee and get comfortable. The Spokane Valley City Council voted to make some speed limit changes, Spokane Valley Fire started operating out of the new Greenacres Fire Station this week and the Liberty Lake City Council approved a one percent property tax increase.
Students from Central Valley schools will be at the Safeway on East Sprague, the Fred Meyer at Sprague and Sullivan, the Liberty Lake Albertson’s and the Albertson’s on 32nd for their annual “Fill the Bus” food drive Saturday to benefit the Spokane Valley Partners Food Bank.
