Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive benefits local food bank
May 22, 2012
The shelves at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank received some necessary additions after the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
The event, held May 12 in Issaquah and nationwide, garnered 16,130 pounds of food for the food bank.
In the annual food drive, residents collect and bag nonperishable food items, and then place the bag inside the mailbox for letter carriers to deliver to a local food bank.
The donation comes as the food bank prepares for summer. Demand often increases as children finish school and no longer receive meals on campus.
