Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive replenishes area food pantries

Individuals are encouraged to fill the bags with food to be donated and leave the bag near their mailbox on Saturday. Past year over 74,000 pounds of food was collected just in Sioux Falls and a total of 75 million pounds across the nation.

With New Mexico ranked as one of the hungriest states in the nation, Roadrunner officials say food drives like this help keep their shelves stocked at a time when they constantly need to be replenished.

The food drive is held every year in more than 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states.

Julio Alonso, the HHFB executive director, said a year ago was excellent for food donations, in part because it was the 25th anniversary for the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

"The 56,000 pounds of food that goes just to the east side pantries, they're doing the same thing on the west side and we split that up equally among all the church pantries and among the local pantries". As of 2010, the National Association of Letter Carriers has collected over one billion pounds of food.

Both Sides React Differently To Google's Referendum Ad Ban
USA -based pro-life groups are among those who have bought online ads in the country ahead of the vote, ABC reports . In a statement , they said: "This decision by Google is not about "concerns about the integrity of elections".


They say the canned goods they received Saturday stock some parts of their pantry for most of the year. All non perishable items collected go to the Hoosier Hills Food Bank. "Our local Kiwanis Club members will still help us deliver the food from the Post Office to the Interfaith Food Closet, and we appreciate that".

"In La Crosse, we have a very large problem with people that don't make enough money to support their families and they really need the food", Western Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Tyler Hubbs said.

"Spread the word, and help us stamp out hunger", said Maness.

We mean this weekend's annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive conducted by the folks who deliver the mail. Healthy low-sodium, low-sugar items such as oatmeal, other whole grains and canola or olive oil will also be accepted.
