Thank you to the 65 members of our union family who volunteered to help sort food and load it into trucks for our local food banks during this year’s for the 25th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. In 2016, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive collected 80 million pounds of food across America – a world record! We joined together with the Letter Carrier’s union to make the world’s largest single day food drive a success!
“UFCW members like ours see the effects of hunger in America every day,” said UFCW Local 227 President Bob Blair. “Every time someone has to turn back and put something away in one of our checkout lanes because they don’t have money, we feel for them. This is a small, but important step, to fixing that problem for Kentucky and Indiana families.”
