Generous Kansans responded as never before to the Letter Carrier’s “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive. The May 8 event brought in more  than 176,000 lbs. collected from the Wichita area, helping the national drive to surpass the 1 billion lb. mark of total food collected since the annual event began 18 years ago.  The donated food will be distributed to hungry Kansans by the Kansas Food Bank through our hundreds of hunger-relief partners. The largest food drive of the year got a boost of local publicity when members of National Association of Letter Carriers Local #201 appeared in the Wichita Riverfest Parade on Friday May 7, alongside “Phil the Backpack,” the icon of the Kansas Food Bank’s Food4Kids backpack program. Thanks to everyone for making the event a huge success!
