Stamp Out Hunger 2022
We participated in the National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger event this year. It is the nation's largest one-day food drive every year. Letter Carriers deliver blue bags to every mailbox and residents were asked to fill the bags with nonperishable food.
We met at the Post Office and helped with the collection of the blue bags. There were also high school community volunteers that went with each adult as their helpers. We drove around different routes in front of the Letter Carrier to collect filled blue bags then delivered them back to the Post Office.Steve Yager, the Regional Coordinator at The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri, said the community gave 7,000 pounds of food this year in one day. Awesome job, Hannibal! We will certainly help again next year!
