Letter carriers helping to stamp out hunger this weekend

“Help Us Help Those in Need” is the theme for the 23rd annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive coming up on Saturday, May 14th. The United States Postal Service is a major sponsor and according to Aaron Porter, a letter carrier with the Logan Post Office, postal workers will be picking up food donations when they come to leave your mail.

“We will be collecting food that we deliver to the Cache Community Food Pantry,” says Porter. “All we ask people to do is to fill up the bags that they will be getting in the mail with non-perishable food items that we can pick up Saturday, or Friday or even Monday. Then we’ll take it to the food pantry for you.”

Porter says, on average, the letter carriers have collected 25,000 to 30,000 pounds of food on “Stamp Out Hunger” day. He said last year it was considerably less because there was rainy weather. He says everyone is hoping Saturday will be a sunny day.
