The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority on Tuesday launched a new food drive called “Givn’ and Groovn' ” to help people in need.

A special Givn' and Groovn' bus will travel to designated stops four days this week, collecting as many canned goods and nonperishables as possible. Donors ages 18 and older will be eligible to enter to win a yearlong supply of milk from Upstate Farms, the NFTA said.

The scheduled stops are:

9 a.m.-noon Tuesday at 181 Ellicott St.

1-4 p.m. Tuesday at Virginia and Ellicott streets.

9 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday at Southgate Plaza Transit Center, West Seneca.
