Thieves helped themselves to Stamp Out Hunger food drive donations

PHOENIX (FOX 10) — It’s a video that is infuriating people around Arizona, as people were stealing food left out for collection as part of the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive that was held on Saturday.

During the food drive, people would put out bags of food for Valley food banks, and their postal carriers would pick them up during their Saturday routes. Some thieves, however, beat the postal workers to the food.

Ericka Sanchez was picking up a food box from Saint Mary’s for an elderly woman she cares for. The woman is on a fixed income, and the box helped immensely. The video of someone stealing from the Stamp Out Hunger food drive made her angry.

That is low. What is lower? USPS Supervisor cherry picking food items collected during food drive as well as a city carrier on the ODL. Was anything done? Nope.

Are you guys sure these weren’t volunteers going out there to help the carriers. We usually have many volunteers. Some carriers are on a tight schedule, so this helps out immensely.

That’s what I was thinking. We were out there all day collecting. We’re retired and just in street clothes and in our personal vehicles.
