Posted by John on 2013/5/7 11:04:04 (319 reads) News by the same author

Second Harvest Community Food Bank and the National Association of Letter Carriers is preparing for the Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. This year, the drive will take place on Saturday, May 11.


“Stamp Out Hunger allows our local letter carriers to be part of the solution to hunger,” said Aaron Smullin, public relations specialist at Second Harvest. “Our letter carriers are a mighty force, and when they come together during this food drive, it sends a clear message that hunger is unacceptable.”
This year, residents will receive postcards telling them about the drive. It’s easy to participate; all someone has to do is leave a bag of non-perishable food items by their mailbox. Your letter carrier will come by, pick it up and make sure it’s delivered to the Grundy County Food Pantry.
Stamp Out Hunger is the largest, single-day food drive in the United States. Last year, nearly 70 million pounds of food was collected by generous Americans. That marked the ninth consecutive year that at least 70 million pounds of food was collected by the letter carriers. In our region, over 44,000 pounds of food was collected last year.
To learn more about Stamp Out Hunger, please visit our website at www.OurCommunityFoodBank.org/SOH. Individuals can also donate online using our Virtual Food Drive www.fooddriveonline.org/secondharvest/stampouthunger.
The vision of Second Harvest Community Food Bank is to build hunger-free communities in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas by nourishing our neighbors. Second Harvest provides food assistance through Partner Agencies and direct service programs. Second Harvest’s sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.
