Annual ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive returning this weekend

The National Association of Letter Carriers’ annual food drive is returning this weekend after a two-year absence due to COVID-19.

The ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive is being held on Saturday, May 14, and postal carriers will be collecting all donations.

Marion County residents can participate in the food drive by placing their non-perishable food donations in a bag near their mailbox on Friday night or Saturday morning. The postal workers will collect the donations which will benefit the food pantry at Interfaith Emergency Services.

According to Interfaith Emergency Services, the nonprofit organization’s shelves are currently bare, and the supply of food staples is “critically low.” On its Facebook webpage, the organization stated, “We are so thankful that we can count on the postal workers and community to help.”
