Rain slows donations for food drive

The Northern Indiana Food bank held its biggest food drive of the year Saturday.

For Stamp Out Hunger, postal carriers collect food and canned goods from postal customers.

“I feel real proud to do this,” Bob Kuminecz , president of Branch 330 South Bend Letter Carriers said.

The rainy weather affected donations.

“It just seems every time we have rainy weather, it kind slows down, because people are a little skeptical to put out the food,” Kuminecz said.

Marijo Martinec, associate director of the Northern Indiana Food Bank said rain shouldn't discourage folks from donating.

“If it's wrapped up and it's in a bag, we're able to salvage what's in that bag,” Martinec said.

Kuminecz and his fellow postal carriers will continue to pick up donated goods throughout the week.

Goods can also be donated in person at the post office or food bank throughout the week.
