TOMORROW: Fill a Bag, Feed a Family

May 8, 2015 By: Marie Pauley Category: Events

One in 10 Minnesotans is at risk of missing a meal each day. That number is even greater for children, with one in six Minnesota kids at risk of hunger. You can help! Tomorrow, fill a bag with non-perishable, non-breakable food items and set it by your mailbox and your letter carrier will do the rest.

Last year, Minnesotans rallied to collect 1 million pounds of food. This year, local letter carriers hope to beat that goal by collecting 1.2 million pounds – the equivalent of 1 million meals!

TWO WAYS TO GIVE

1. Fill a bag with non-perishable, non-breakable food items and set it by your mailbox tomorrow, Saturday, May 9. Your letter carrier will do the rest.

2. Donate online through May 15 and The Land O’Lakes Foundation will match your gift, up to a total of $25,000.

If you happen to catch your letter carrier tomorrow, make sure to say “thank you” for their extra efforts in the fight to end hunger.
