Stamp Out Hunger Update

Thank you for your support! 

Thanks to the National Association of Letter Carriers and their annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, our warehouse is now jam-packed with enough food to feed families during the summer months when donations are typically low, and families need more food to help feed children who are not receiving free meals at school.

This vital one-day food drive on May 14 brought in 60,794 pounds of food. That’s 50,661 meals satisfying and nutritious meals!
 

Many thanks to the hundreds of volunteers and thousands of generous donors who helped make the postal food drive such a success.

Help for Cooking on a Budget

We've teamed up with Cooking Matters—the experts on cooking healthy meals on a budget!

This summer, we'll have chefs from Cooking Matters onsite to show the families we help how to prepare delicious and healthy meals using food from The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). TEFAP is a federal program that provides nutrition assistance to very low-income families. We partner with the USDA and Food Bank of the Rockies to offer the program locally.

Since the selection of TEFAP food varies monthly and sometimes includes unfamiliar items, we want to show families how to make nutritious and budget-friendly meals using items available from our Client Choice Pantry such as split peas, canned pork, baking mix and dried cherries.

In addition to conducting cooking demonstrations, Cooking Matters provides hands-on cooking classes, online programming, digital resources and more. We're making their recipe cards and other materials available in our lobby and pantry. When families sign up for a Cooking Matters class, they'll receive a $10 gift card to purchase the ingredients.

To learn more about Cooking Matters and all they do to help families maximize their food resources and learn to cook healthy meals on a budget, visit cookingmatters.org.
