(KSL News) -- The Utah Food Bank is getting ready for a long and hungry winter. Today Snowbird helped out by dropping off almost three tons of food collected over the past few weeks.

The food came from visitors to the resort who traded cans for tram rides.

Laura Schaffer, Snowbird: "It seems like people have made a routine of, 'let's go up to Snowbird in the fall, bring our cans there, and really hopefully kick off the donation holiday and winter donation season.'"

Last year the food ban distributed more than 220-million pounds of food to people across the state.
