Leave a bag, we'll do the rest

This Saturday, May 12. the 20th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive will take place. This is the nation’s largest single-day food drive.

Last year, generous Americans donated over 70 million pounds of food across the nation. In our region our generous neighbors donated 40,000 pounds of food. That means 30,700 meals helped nourish our neighbors in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas.

It’s easy for residents to take part in Stamp Out Hunger. All individuals have to do is leave a bag of non-perishable food items by their mailbox on May 12th. Your letter carrier will make sure the food is delivered to Second Harvest or one of our Partner Agencies.

The 40,000 pounds of food collected last year filled one of our trucks. We have issued a challenge to individuals. This year, we challenge the community to work together to fill two trucks, collecting 80,000 pounds and providing over 61,000 meals.
