Local donations to the Freestore Foodbank through the 2017 Stamp Out Hunger food drive currently stand at the equivalent of more than 58,100 meals for our hungry neighbors.

Additionally, thousands of pounds of food were donated to some of the Freestore Foodbank’s partner food pantries and soup kitchen located in 20 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana through the food drive.

Now in its 25th year, the Stamp Out Hunger food drive is the nation’s largest single-day food drive, having collected more than 1.5 billion pounds of food nationally since its inception. On Saturday, May 13, 2017 residents left non-perishable food items next to their mailboxes prior to the time of regular mail delivery. Letter carriers collected donations from homes, and, locally, delivered the donations to the Freestore Foodbank and some of its community partners.
