There’s an easy way you can help the hungry on Saturday (May 8), and you don’t have to go far to do so…just out to your mailbox.
This Saturday is the National Association of Letter Carriers’ annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
It’s simple: Just gather up some non-perishable food items (canned meats, fish, soup, juice and vegetables, and pasta, cereal and rice are all good — no expired items or anything in glass containers, though), put them in a bag and leave them at your mailbox early on Saturday (before your letter carrier usually visits).
Your carrier will pick up the food and it will be distributed to a local food bank or pantry.
The drive is being co-sponsored by Feeding America, which operates in Riverside as the Second Harvest Food Bank, so you know your donations will be distributed right here in the Inland Empire.
Thanks in advance for your donations!
