Food Drive appears to be a great success

Letter carrier/Rotarians to have food drive this Saturday

The food is sorted, and delivered to an area food bank or pantry, where it is available for needy families.

Penny thinks this is the flawless time of year to put this event on. Food collected during Saturday's drive will be delivered to local community churches, food banks and food pantries for distribution.

Western NY communities donated over 1.3 million pounds of food for their neighbors in the 2017 NALC Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

Letter carriers with the United States Postal Service worked until 7 p.m. collecting food from the homes of Santa Claritans willing to donate what they could to help those who need a meal.

"And today is the date that they are to set them out at their mailbox and we'll pick them up", city letter carrier Curtis Lewis said. Other highly requested items include 100 percent juice, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, canned protein (tuna, chicken and turkey), and beans (canned or dry).

In York County, the USPS branch has been participating for 24-years and event coordinators say it continues to have an impact on them.

Julio Alonso, the HHFB executive director, said a year ago was excellent for food donations, in part because it was the 25th anniversary for the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

"We take (the food) back to the post office and weigh it, usually", Mustaine said.

The donations will eventually make their way to the Roadrunner Food Bank, where volunteers will spend the next several months sorting them all out.

Don't forget to put out a bag of food on Saturday, says the Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County Food Bank.
