Don't forget to leave out a bag of non-perishable food by your mailbox TODAY (Saturday, May 8th, 2010) for your letter carrier to pick up for the Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
Here are some great reasons to do so (data from www.helpstampouthunger.com):
- estimated 49 million Americans are at risk of hunger
- because of the worsened ecomony, food banks have noticed a 30% increase in food demand
- children that suffer from malnourishment suffer from higher levels of physical and emotional problems
