USPS Stamp Out Hunger Drive helps Superior

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Superior, AZ – Every second Saturday in May for the last 21 years, the United States Post Office has engaged in a food drive that involes letter carriers from more than 10,000 cities and towns across the nation. Last year, this single-day food drive collected over 70 million pounds of food.

The Superior Food Bank, located at 99 Lobb Ave. in Superior, benefited from the drive and that benefit will be returned to the community. April distribution for the food bank was 202 households, and 518 people helped in total. Thanks to the food drive, they hope to serve at least that many in May.

The Superior Food Bank’s hours of distribution for this month are Thurs., May 30 and Fri., May 31 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“We are deeply grateful for your recent drive across the country in collecting food for families in need,” a representative from the Superior Food Bank said in a written statement. “In our own community of Superior, it was a huge success.”

“We want to especially thank those that gave,” they continued. “Your generosity is much appreciated by those that volunteer their time and talents to bag those non-perishable food items.”
