We just love this cute pic of a mail man loading letters and food. It's the perfect example of a nice canned food drive happening nationwide tomorrow. Some (or is it just us?) may immediately think this canned good drive is a great way to drive up Campbell's business, and they'd probably be correct. Campbell's is the main sponsor. They also may wonder, "Hey, how do I know some sketchy dude(tte) isn't going to take off with the goods before the mail carrier arrives? If they rifle through my garbage every Wednesday night, what's to stop 'em from taking canned goods?" That's a good point, but we're still gonna chance it and donate. Afterall, leaving some non-perishable canned goods out is an easy way to participate in this effort to end or "stamp out" (mail reference number one!) hunger. Just think of how easy it'll be to get rid of all those cans you haven't gotten around to eating in the last few weeks or months! We're just sayin', keep it FIFO. The National Postal Carriers are working with Second Harvest, which is the second largest hunger-relief organization, and provides food assistance to more than 25 million low-income hungry people, including more than 9 million children and almost 3 million seniors.
Stay tuned. Share Our Strength is having a great event in June that also fights hunger.
