Stamp Out Hunger event this Saturday

PALESTINE, May 9, 2013--The Stamp Out Hunger event will be held this Saturday, May 11. Stamp Out Hunger is a joint effort of the Campbell Soup Company and the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) to support Feeding America and to help Stamp Out Hunger across America. The annual food drive helps provide assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.

To participate in the Stamp Out Hunger food drive, residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, peanut butter, rice or cereal, next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 11. The nation’s 175,000 letter carriers, representing nearly 1,500 NALC  branches in more than 10,000 communities, will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to a local Feeding America food bank or hunger-relief organization.

KYYK’s Gary Richards spoke with Palestine Post Office Supervisor Shane Willard about the event. Click below to hear details.
