US POSTAL SERVICE “STAMP OUT HUNGER” FOOD DRIVE – is just days away, read on to see how you can be part of this important fun event!

SATURDAY, MAY 11 – 11:00 AM until 5:30~ISH.

For those of you who’ve never experienced it, this is our single biggest food drive of the year.

Last year’s drive totaled 17,743 lbs of food to re-stock the food bank, which sustains us until the Holiday food drives begin each November.

In other words, IT’S AN IMPORTANT EVENT!
What else is it, you ask?

It’s a BBQ (beer-soaked brats and all the fixings) It’s music! It’s fun!

And there are LOTS of jobs for everyone that we hope you can help us with – such as:

*Set-up & take-down teams
*Route drivers ( 18 teams of 2)
*Volunteer check-in table
*Servers (of all the wonderful food!)
*Unloaders (of the cars coming in filled with donations)
*Weigh-table (to weigh and tally the lbs)
*Sorters – LOTS of them
*Storage organizers

DRIVERS: Start time: ~10:30am and 11:00 am. Teams of 2 follow postal routes and pick up food that donors have left by their mailboxes.

When their cars are full, they return to Fishline where teams onsite will unload, weigh & record the lbs they’ve collected. If necessary, those driver teams will go back out to finish the route they’ve been assigned.

ONSITE VOLUNTEERS: Choose from the jobs above. We’ll give you complete instructions, as well as your start-times. (Set-up usually begins ~9:00 am; take-down usually begins ~5:00 pm – to be confirmed.)
