SETX participates in the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

The Southeast Texas Food Bank would like to thank all of those in our community who donated to the 2013 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. The National Association of Letter Carriers and local postal carriers worked diligently this past Saturday to collect over 50,000 pounds of food to place directly into the hands of those in need in Southeast Texas.

The drive kicked off Friday May 10, with an opening day event at The Walden Road USPS location. The tremendous volunteer efforts of the USPS letter carriers in Southeast Texas contributed to the collection, and would not have been possible without their time. More information is available at stampouthunger.info.

The mission of the Texas WIC (Women, Infants & Children) program is to improve the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.
