The 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive will be a welcome event for area food panties next weekend. The National Association of Letter Carriers has collected food from mailboxes the last 25 years and donated over 75 million pounds of food nationally. Ken Marquardt from the Kewaunee County Food Pantry says that they are grateful for the boost this time of year.
All resident in Kewaunee and Door County are encouraged to set out non-perishable food items by their mailbox next Saturday before 9 am. Last year over 26,000 pounds of goods were collected in Door County alone.
