Over 95,000 Lbs. of Food Collected in Stamp Out Hunger Drive

DULUTH, Minn. – Local results for the nation’s largest single-day food drive, the National Association Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, were released today.

Local letter carriers along with community volunteers collected 95,627 pounds of food donations throughout the Twin Ports on May 13 for area food shelves.

Area food shelves will begin to receive the food over a period of  a few months.

“We are looking at the fact that school is almost out and we need extra foods for families whose children will be home from school,” explained CHUM Food Shelf Director, Scott Van Deale. “The Stamp Out Hunter Food Drive fills a large gap in our food supplies this time of year!”

Super One Food also donated $6,000 cash for the drive. Various organizations such as Head of the Lakes United Way, United Food and Commerical Workers union, AFL-CIO, CHUM, and local post offices and letter carriers all work together to put the drive on locally every year.
