QUINCY -- Adams County residents donated 23,600 pounds of food on Saturday, May 11, during the annual "Stamp Out Hunger" national food drive to stock the shelves of local food pantries.

The National Association of Letter Carriers, assisted by United Way of Adams County volunteers, collected the food, which was distributed to 11 Adams County food pantries on Monday.

"Thanks to everyone in the community and those at the post office, this year's food drive was a tremendous success coming close to the highest amount of food the letter carriers have ever donated," said local coordinator and letter carrier George Meyer.

Food pantries receiving food collected by the letter carriers were: Quincy Catholic Charities, Quanada, Community For Christ, Salvation Army, Horizons Social Services, Lutheran Church of St. John, GPS Ministries, Luther Memorial Church, St. Francis Church, Ladies of Charity and the Crossing.
