Although donations from Saturday’s food drive are still trickling in, as of Thursday, SERVE’s total of food collected amounted to about 6,200 pounds.
All the food donated in Callaway County during Saturday’s National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive was taken to SERVE’s food pantry. About 1,900 pounds were brought in from the Holts Summit Post Office, adding to the almost 4,300 pounds collected by the Fulton Post Office. This year’s total, however, was about half of the amount collected last year — 12,000 pounds.
