LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Food Finders Food Bank said last weekend’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive brought in more than 64,000 pounds of food, but it was under the goal set for this year’s event.

The food bank’s goal was set at 70,000 pounds, an increase from last year’s goal. Food Finders executive director Katy Bunder said this time of year is when many families struggle, because kids who had been eating at school are now at home.

The Stamp Out Hunger drive is a national food drive with the National Association of Letter Carriers.

Bunder said you can still contribute to the food drive by dropping off non-perishable food at Food Finders Food Bank, 50 Olympia Court, in Lafayette.
