Help Stamp Out Hunger 2012 Food Drive

Help Stamp Out Hunger 2012 Food Drive

This is something very close to my heart.  While I've never “gone hungry”, I've gone without dinner to make sure my kid has had enough to eat.  I have managed to make a decent meal for under $3 and thanks to the pantry and ample storage in the kitchen in this apartment compared to the last place I lived I have more than enough space to store non perishables.  I know that many people don’t have that luxury though and I also know with the growing prices of food that it’s getting harder and harder to feed your family.

This really can’t be easier though.  Fill a bag of non perishables and leave it for your mail carrier on Saturday, May 12 and they will deliver it to a local food bank or pantry.  Easy Peasy :) It’s just one day, it’s just a few $ worth of groceries that can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

Donate items like canned meats, fish, soup, bottled juice, vegetables, pasta, cereal and rice that do not require refrigeration. Please do not include items that have expired or are in glass containers.
