On Saturday, May 9th, 2015, local letter carriers in Monroe County will once again be collecting food for Hoosier Hills Food Bank through the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
Stamp Out Hunger is the food bank’s largest annual food drive and provides an important source of non-perishable donations to support the nearly 100 food pantries, kitchens, shelters and youth programs that obtain food from HHFB.
Last year, this critical source of food was down by 24%, leaving food bank shelves bare during most of the summer. Both HHFB and the food drive’s sponsor, National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 828, are hoping for a better response in 2015.
Donating is easy. All people need to do is place a non-perishable food donation by their mailbox on Saturday, May 9th. Their letter carrier will collect it for the food bank.
Volunteers are also needed to help prepare a mailing that reminds all Monroe County residents about the food drive, and to help collect food in areas where carriers are on foot. To volunteer, contact Ryan at 812-334-8374 or email@example.com.
Food insecurity (a lack of regular access to nutritious food) affects over 4,500 Monroe County children. Stamp Out Hunger provides an important supply of food to the agencies working to reduce that problem.
