The United States Postal Service Looks to Fight Hunger

WGIL Newsroom . Local News 223

The Fish Food Pantry is looking for the community’s help and they’ve turned to the United States Postal Service.

This Saturday, around the county, the USPS will be collecting non-perishable food items for their annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive.

Local letter carriers will be collecting food to be donated to the Fish Food Pantry in Galesburg and letter carrier Toni Ball tells the WGIL Morning News this is the 22nd year for the drive and at this point they’ve got the system down.

“If you have food to set out, set it out as early as you can, we’re going to be coming by with trucks, the trucks are going to have a ‘Stamp out Hunger’ magnet on it so you’ll know it’s with us,” says Ball.

Ball says when thinking about food to donate, think about what your kids eat.

She says easy stuff to make like mac-and-cheese, Spaghetti-O’s, and even cereal are great things to donate.
