Stamp Out Hunger

Three cheers for the USPS and the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive!

A postcard in the mail on Friday, reminded me to leave groceries by the mailbox on Saturday.  I went to the grocery store early on Saturday morning. When I got home, Jeff commented that I was gone longer than usual. I replied," I needed to do some extra shopping. In the back of the car, there is a big box that is too heavy for me to carry. Can you put it by the mailbox?"

Last year 77 million pounds of food was collected nationwide. I read a statistic that 1 in 8 Americans rely on food assistance and 55 million Americans struggle with hunger. This is both sad and shocking. I cannot image so many hungry people in our prosperous country.
