Stuff the Bus, Stamp Out Hunger food drives next month

Food collected benefit the South Kitsap Helpline Food Bank.

PORT ORCHARD — South Kitsap Helpline is gearing up for two significant food drives in May.

On Saturday, May 5, Helpline’s food bank is teaming with the Port Orchard Albertsons and Safeway stores for the 10th annual “Stuff The Bus” event at the Albertsons store at Sedgwick and Olney.

Volunteers will gather nonperishable food items and fill up a South Kitsap School District bus for delivery to the Helpline food bank. Contact Michelle McLean at 360-874-7085 for more information.

And on Saturday, May 12, U.S. Postal Service letter carriers will pick up nonperishable food items left next to your mailbox. Those items also will be taken to Helpline’s food bank for distribution in the South Kitsap community.

The letter carriers’ event is the 26th annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive conducted nationally.
