MARCH IS FOOD SHARE MONTH
EVERY DAY, RIGHT HERE IN DOUGLAS COUNTY
There are children who cannot concentrate in school because they have not eaten.
There are parents who sacrifice their own nutritional needs so that their children can have something to eat.
There are elderly who have to choose between buying food or buying needed medicines.
There are working people who sometimes run out of money to buy healthy food.
There are hundreds of different people who depend on food from Outreach Food shelf each month for their very next meal.
Getting through a crisis, getting a job, recovering from an illness, taking a test-life’s problems, big and small, are nearly impossible when you are hungry. Outreach Food Shelf deals with that most basic human need-food-so struggling adults and children can address their life problems.
SILVER-ANNIVERSARY FOOD DRIVE ANOTHER SHINING SUCCESS
On May 13th, our local Letter Carriers came to the rescue of struggling families through the 25th annual Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. This years drive brought in almost 4,000 pounds of non-perishable food that was collected from generous postal patrons and delivered to the Outreach Food Shelf. Thanks to everyone for helping us provide families in need with a lifeline of basic nutrition.
