'Stamp Out Hunger' food drive to take place Saturday
Chattanoogans have a chance to help the Chattanooga Area Food Bank with the 'Stamp Out Hunger' food drive.
In the Scenic City, 1 in 4 children are unsure of where their next meal will come from.
The public is encouraged to leave non-perishable food items next to your mailbox before the post office comes by.
The Food Bank says the program makes a big impact this time of year.
"This food actually helps get us through the summer. A lot of families in school the students get their breakfast and lunch from school and then during the summer it may be tough for them to provide food. So, they come to us to help get them through and provide meals for the kids," Scott Bruce, Director of Marketing & Communications for Chattanooga Area Food Bank, said.
The record total across the country was 71 million pounds of food collected during last year's 'Stamp Out Hunger' event.
If you forget to leave food at your mailbox, you can drop off donations at the food bank between 3:30-5:30 pm Saturday, May 12.
