Relocate to Wisconsin : Be Part of Your Local Hunger Solution...STAMP it OUT Sat. May 12th

Be Part of Your Local Hunger Solution...STAMP it OUT Sat. May 12th

  Saturday, May 12th is the annual food drive by US postal workers across the country.  You may have gotten a plastic bag in your mailbox in the last week or two as a reminder to fill it with non perishable food items Stamp out hunger 2019and place it at your mailbox on Saturday for the postal worker to pick up on their regular route.

     This is an appeal that we partcipate in every year. We consider the varying needs of families served by this drive when we shop for our contribution.  It may mean things like Hamburger or Tuna Helper, Canned pasta dishes, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, pancake mix, cereal and the "usual" non perishable items that food pantries request in their collections.  We also believe that going thru a rough patch doesn't mean not having a little "food fun" .  We also include powdered drink mixes and popcorn. a cake mix and frosting ...after all celebrations need to happen regardless of the family budget.

     We also include baby food in our bags of donations...cereal and jars for infant to toddlers to insure that they too benefit from this generous collection effort by postal employees.Bags of Food

     This is the 26th year that the post office has held this drive annually the second Saturday in May.  We urge you to be a part of the "Hunger Solution" in your community ....search your pantry, shop with these items in mind and be generous in your "gift of giving back" to people less fortunate.  

      Going to sleep....or getting thru a day being hungry is unimaginable...be part of the solution  that makes this true for the people in your community who need a hand up at a difficult time.

      This has been a public service post brought to you by Sally K.  & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with Keller Williams Realty honored to serve Southeastern Wisconsin for all things real estate.

Morning Sally.

We have never got one of those bags in our mailbox.  I don't know if we'll get one this year, but I'll be looking for it

That's interesting. I haven't seen anything from the USPS about this - I wonder if it's a local thing?

Our grocery store just had a food drive last week. Any way we can give towards helping the hungry is useful.

Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson ,

I think the reason we haven't heard about it is because out mail goes to cluster boxes..no personal delivery. I'm working at our Central area Food bank every month trying to do my part. Thanks for getting the word out!

With the abundance of food in this country, nobody should have to go hungry.  I volunteer at a place that gives out food boxes to the working poor and most of the people rely on it as their grocery shopping.

Good morning Sally and David - this is something I didn't know. I think the advertising for this must be spotty.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) 16 days ago

Yes, we take part in it every year. Hunger is an embarrassment in our country. No one should ever go without food in a country that throws out the volume of food that we do. But that's another topic. Lol.

Sally and David my wife and I usually participate in this every year, but I don't recall getting a plastic bag yet.

Hi Sally and David- I have food ready to go. Today when I was at the market, I took advantage of the BOGOs (Buy One Get One) and picked up items I needed in duplicate to donate.

Hello Sally and David - each of us who is able can make a difference.

We didn't get a bag this year and wonder what is going one. Thanks and we will put out some can goods anyway.
