South Bend and the surrounding towns may have tons of food to hand out, after this weekend.
The Food Bank of Northern Indiana held their first food rally Monday afternoon. It was all in support of Stamp out Hunger, the largest food donation event every year.
The goal is to collect 200,000 pounds of non-perishable food items. Both Mishawaka and South Bend mayors attended the rally to help spread the message about the silent epidemic.
"I think we will reach the goal,” said Milt Lee with the Stamp out Hunger Rally. “It's a very aggressive goal, but based on what happened last year and based on how generous the community was last year and what we are seeing this year, I think we are going to reach 200,000 pounds, but we need every body's help."
Letter carriers of the United States Postal Service will pick up any donations. Just leave them next to your mailbox by eight o'clock Saturday morning.
