Who likes to be hungry right? I know I surely dont!!! Well here is what you can do to help...
On Saturday May 8th place non perishable food items in A bag and leave in at or by your mail box. Your mail carrier will then deliver them to LOCAL food banks, That way it benefits your community directly.
What A awesome way to help out especially when your belly is full....

Did you know???
  • More than 90 percent of the food banks reported surges in demand being driven by more first-time users of the food assistance system  and more newly unemployed.
  • 72 percent reported existing clients needing assistance more frequently now than in the past
  • 56 percent reported seeing more children as clients
  • Helping Stamp Out Hunger is as easy as checking your mailbox.  Just leave a bag of non-perishable food where your letter carrier normally delivers your mail on Saturday, May 8.  Your letter carrier will then pick up and deliver the food to a local food bank.  Examples of non-perishable items include:

    • Canned soup
  • Canned meats and fish
  • Canned vegetables, fruits and juices
  • Boxed goods (such as cereal)
  • Pasta and rice
