Needline Receives Stamp Out Hunger Food Donations
By WestKyStar Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - The annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive held in Mayfield and Graves County Saturday brought in boxes and bags of staple food items left by residents at mail boxes throughout the city and county for mail carriers to pick up and deliver to local post offices.
About four pickup truck loads of food were donated to the Mayfield-Graves County Needline & Food Pantry, which provides emergency food to needy families. Additional food items went to the St. Vincent Depaul Society.
The National Association of Letter Carriers, Rural Letter Carriers Association and the U.S. Postal Service conducted the 21st annual project. It is the single largest food drive in the country each year. Some 70 million pounds of staple food goods were picked up and delivered to food pantries last year.
