BOUNTIFUL—No matter the weather letter carriers deliver the mail. The same can be said for hunger, it’s there no matter the season. That’s why the National Association of Letter Carriers in conjunction with the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association and United States Postal Service is partnering with the Bountiful Community Food Pantry to “Stamp Out Hunger” this Saturday, May 12. This marks the 26th anniversary of the drive.
Residents can help by leaving a bag or box with non-perishable food items next to their mailbox by 9 a.m. on that day. Letter carriers in south Davis County will collect the donations along their route and deliver them to the Pantry.
According to a release, the most needed items include tuna, condiments, chili and diapers. Please make sure food is commercially packaged and non-perishable. Items should be low in sodium, sugar and corn syrup.
Financial donations can also be made at www.bountifulfoodpantry.org or at the Pantry, 480 E. 140 North, Bountiful. Call 801-299-8464 for more information.
