Central Missouri Food Bank Prepares for Stamp Out Hunger
COLUMBIA - Letter carriers met at the Central Missouri Food Bank to prepare for the 19th Annual "Stamp Out Hunger" event. The letter carriers sorted a large mailing of grocery bags to deliver to homes in order to collect donations.
Mid-Missourians will receive special "Stamp Out Hunger" bags to place their food donations in next week. The letter carriers will pick up the bags when they drop off the mail on Saturday, May 14.
Last year the Columbia letter carriers collected 230,000 pounds of food. This year they hope to collect as much as 300,000.
