Stamp out Hunger food drive to collect food at your mailbox
TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- One in nine people in our community suffers from hunger. Tomorrow, your local letter carrier is here to help by collecting food for the hungry.
Second Harvest Food Bank joins forces with the United States Postal Service to take non-perishable food donations for Stamp Out Hunger, the nation's leading food drive.
People can raid their kitchen cabinets and pack grocery bags full of canned and dry goods to leave out by the mailbox.
All food donated will help stock the shelves of homes in Benton and Franklin counties for two to three months worth.
"It's great to have members of the community come together," said Second Harvest Development Manager Jean Tucker, "and those letter carriers who come face to face with people in our community everyday see the need out there, being able to pull together and make a difference."
People without mailboxes can also head to their local Yoke's Market where various donation stations will be set up.
