Thanks to the goodness and compassion of local postal customers, the Stamp Out Hunger food drive collected nearly 20,000 pounds of food. This food will help feed our 1 in 6 neighbors who are food insecure in San Luis Obispo County. Thank you SLO County Post Offices, Letter Carriers and postal customers for feeding our neighbors in need!
