The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and Philabundance are combining forces to help fight hunger in the Philadelphia area.

The eighth annual Stop Hunger At Your Station food drive will begin Monday and continue through June 20.

Donations can be made at 43 designated locations for the duration of the drive at Regional Rail stations, Market-Frankford Line stops, Broad Street Line stops and other transportation centers. A full list of locations can be found here.

Philabundance requests the following items of need: canned tuna, canned pasta, canned fruit, canned beef ravioli, creamy peanut butter in plastic jars, jelly in plastic jars, cereal and oatmeal.

SEPTA will also have a specially-wrapped Philabundance bus making various stops to promote the food drive.

According to SEPTA, last year's drive contributed the equivalent of 29,000 meals to Philabundance.
