Second Harvest, mail carriers work to Stamp Out Hunger

We are asking the community to help us by donating canned food items through the Letter Carriers' Food Drive.

On Saturday, postal carries collected donated non-perishable food left outside residential mailboxes. The Chester donations are given to the Chester County Ministerial Association's Community Food Pantry at Purity Presbyterian Church, to the Turning Point and other assistance agencies with food pantries. They say the goal for this year is 50,000 pounds of food.

Richard Hatzenbuhler says, "It feels great to help out the community".

Food bank director, Linda Scheid says that the day couldn't happen without the numerous volunteers that come out annually.

The United States Postal Service, National Association of Letter Carriers, National Rural Letter Carriers' Association, AFL-CIO, Feeding America, United Way, Valassis and Valpak Direct Marketing Systems are all supporting this year's Stamp Out Hunger food drive. "But most people will put out a couple bags", Wood said. Last year's drive collected more than 80 million pounds of nonperishable food, and "all food collected stays local", according to a press release.

The donations go to CAC to distribute to food panties in the area.

A big food drive is happening this weekend, and those who want to participate do not even have to leave home.

At the end of the day they counted a preliminary total of 69,000 pounds of food, but it's not too late to get involved.

Every donation makes a difference, and all of the donations really add up. Canned fruits and vegetables, whole grain, low sugar cereals, macaroni and cheese dinners and 100% fruit juice also top the list of most needed items.
