This weekend’s Stamp Out for Hunger is a welcome event for food pantries in the area. The National Association of Letter Carriers has collected food from mailboxes and homes for the last 25 years, totaling over one billion pounds nationwide in that span. The items stay local, making Kewaunee County Food Pantry President Ken Marquardt very happy after receiving over 2,200 pounds of food last year.
Last year, Door County mail carriers collected over 25,000 pounds of non-perishable items. You can make your own contribution to the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive this Saturday by leaving items in or by your mailbox by 9 a.m.
