In the United States, millions of people are without adequate food on a daily basis.
The Skid Row Running Club, thru the efforts of Rafael, has been participating in Stamp out Hunger, a nationwide effort to bring food to the needy.
Every year, usually in May, you may receive a brown grocery bag, asking for donations of canned or unperishable food. Your local letter carrier then brings those donated food items to your central post office, where they are unloaded, separated into crates and delivered to large locations.
The efforts don't stop there! After thousand of tons of food are collected, there is still the process of sorting the items and distributing them in an organized fashion.
So the next time you get one of those brown bags from your letter carrier, make sure to fill it up with food items and you too can help end nationwide hunger!
If you are interested in joining us we will meet this Saturday on June 9, 2018 at the Midnight Mission at 7:30am.
