LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Food Finders Food Bank and The United Way are working with local letter carriers to bring in as much food as possible this Saturday. They're asking for your help with the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. They need non-perishable donations to distribute through all the local food banks.

Food banks rely heavily on the holiday season for much of their needs. But the food they receive at the end of the year only goes so far.

"Food drives happen around harvest time it seems like. So in the Spring people don't think about it as much. And really the Summer months are really the hardest probably harder than the holiday season for households that need to provide food for their children who are out of school, " said CEO/ President of Food Finders Food Bank, Katy Bunder.


Bags have been distributed in the mail throughout the Greater Lafayette Area. Food Finders asks that when considering a donation try and think about what a child would eat. Things like canned fruit and peanut butter are perfect items to donate.

Donation bags will be picked up this Saturday by your letter carrier.
