The Food Bank of Northern Indiana’s largest food drive is happening on Saturday as they look to collect over 100,000 pounds of non-perishable food items.
It’s called the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
Letter carriers in over 10,000 communities will collect food donations along their postal routes on the second Saturday in May.
The food is collected to restock shelves for summer months – a time when the need is high and donations are normally low.
The most needed items are canned soup, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, cereal, rice, canned fruit, boxed dinner meals and more.
They’re also looking for personal care items and cleaning supplies.
The Food Bank collected over 80,000 pounds of food during last year’s collection.
