pounds of food have been collected along postal routes since the drive began 21
Stamp Out Hunger!
in Lancaster this year, simply leave a sturdy bag containing
non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or
cereal next to your mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on May
11. Food items should be in
non-breakable containers, such as boxes and cans. Local letter and rural carriers will then
collect donations from homes and deliver them to HOPE in Lancaster.
Way of Lancaster County will be coordinating community volunteers for the food
drive. Last year Lancaster collected
over 9,000 pounds of food which benefited HOPE in Lancaster's food pantry. Volunteers are needed on Saturday, May 11 from
12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Lancaster Post Office. To volunteer or for
additional information, please contact United Way of Lancaster County at 283-8923 or email@example.com.
