Mail carriers to collect food donations for Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
PASCO, Wash. - The largest one-day food drive in the country is coming to the Tri-Cities this week.
To help Stamp Out Hunger, Second Harvest is partnering with Tri-Cities mail carriers for the 26th Annual Hunger Food Drive.
To donate, on Saturday, May 12, you can place a box or bag with shelf-stable food donations next to your mailbox.
Mail carriers will then collect those donations or you can also drop them off at any local post office.
Leaders at Second Harvest say they rely on these donations to stock the shelves in Benton and Franklin Counties.
Development and Marketing Director, Jean Tucker said, “In the Tri-Cities over 30,000 children rely on school meals, sometimes for breakfast and lunch, so when kids are home during the summer they don't have access to that and that puts a huge demand on families that are already struggling to put food on the table.”
They're looking for non-perishable food donations such as canned soups, green beans and boxes of cereal.
