On Saturday May 14, letter carriers in more than 10,000 communities, including Michiana, will collect food donations along their postal routes to restock food banks and pantries during Stamp Out Hunger.

After a two-year pandemic pause in 2020 and 2021, the Food Bank’s 2022 goal is to collect 100,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to restock its shelves for the summer months when the need is high and food drive donations are typically low.

Among the most-needed items are:

Canned Soup
Boxed Dinner Meals
Peanut Butter & Jelly
Breakfast Cereal
Mac and Cheese
Boxed Noodles and
Spaghetti Sauce

Again, you can “stamp out hunger” on Saturday, May 14th.
