Give food or your time to help Stamp Out Hungerby Tucson Citizen on May. 08, 2009, under Family, Local, Special
Help Stamp Out Hunger by leaving a bag of nonperishible food by the mailbox Saturday.
The nation’s largest single-day food drive is organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers.
Food collected here will go to the Tucson Community Food Bank, which received more than 334,000 pounds of food from last year’s event.
Simply leave a bag of nonperishable food, such as canned meats, vegetables or soups; cereal; peanut butter; canned fruit; or canned tomato products next to the mailbox Saturday before the regular mail delivery time. Food should be in nonbreakable containers. Local letter carriers will collect donations and deliver them to the Community Food Bank.
The Food Bank also needs volunteers to help transfer collected food from the mail trucks to vans or to cover some routes and pick up donated food. For more information, call 622-0525 Ext. 204 or go online to communityfoodbank.com.
