Letter carriers across Kansas will be participating in the 21st annual National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive on May 11th.
This is the largest one day food drive that occurs for the Kansas Food Bank and its partner agencies. In El Dorado, all food collected will be given to Salvation Army and Twelve Baskets food pantries.
Thanks to a generous donation from NetApp, special blue collection bags will be used in your community this year.
Bags will be placed in residential mailboxes. Residents will simply fill the bag with non-perishable food items and leave at their mailbox for collection on Saturday, May 11th.
Letter carriers will return all the collected items to the designated agency where the food will be distributed to households in need.
The food items most needed include:
• Meals in a can (soup, chili, stew)
• Tuna or other canned meat
• Peanut Butter
