It’s Food Drive Season!!
May Food Drive: Stamp Out Hunger
This is a nation-wide event and is the single largest food drive conducted on one designated day from coast to coast. The National Association of Letter Carriers are committed participants in this large undertaking every year, and are anticipating another successful food drive.
“Stamp Out Hunger” makes it easy for residents to donate. All they have to do is place non-perishable food items in bags and place the bags next to their mailboxes on Saturday,
May 14, 2016. U.S. Postal Service letter carriers will pick up the bags and donated items to help stock the shelves at the Food Bank of Siouxland.
Food Drive Information:
“The Food Bank of Siouxland is so appreciative of this great work!” stated Executive Director Linda Scheid. “We are seeing so many people needing the support of the agencies offering either meals or take-home food, and that means the demand here at the Food Bank is incredibly high. It is a struggle for donations to keep pace with the need. The food drives are a tremendous boost.”
Volunteers are expected! Sorting the donations will be done in the Food Bank warehouse on Saturday, May 14. The work begins at 3 PM. Give us a call to sign up! 712-255-9741.
The Food Bank does request that participants not donate expired food, open containers, product without labels, or product in glass containers, as they are easily broken. Most commonly needed items include canned fruits, canned meats, cereal, peanut butter, and pasta.
Mission Statement: The Food Bank of Siouxland, a nonprofit organization, strives to be responsive to the needs of its agencies, donors and volunteers by efficiently soliciting and distributing food to feeding programs for the needy.
“The Food Bank of Siouxland is an equal opportunity provider.”
