Many people know about those in need around fall and winter holidays, but do not realize summer also has high demand because children are no longer getting meals in school.
Last year the Food Bank collected almost 1 million pounds of food.
Donations from the community go to the Utah Food Bank and its 129 regional food banks and pantries across the state.
Sponsored nationally by the National Association of Letter Carriers, in conjunction with National Rural Letter Carriers' Association and United States Postal Service.
There is no one way to know who is hungry in the community.
One in five Utah children, and one in six adults, aren't sure where they will get their next meal.
Almost half a million Utahns are at risk of missing a meal every day.
This is why the Utah Food Bank needs everyone who is able to give to participate. Many people don't realize how many Utahns need help getting enough food.
Put out bags of food by your mailbox for your letter carrier Saturday, May 11, to help fight hunger in Utah.
Must be commercially packaged and non-perishable.
Especially appreciate food that is more nutritious - low in sodium, sugar and corn syrup.
Most needed items are canned fruit, veggies and meat, as well as peanut butter and pasta.
