Overview

West Heights UMC partners with the Kansas Food Bank to sort and box food collected by the annual Letter Carrier's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.  All of the food collected in Wichita stays in Wichita, delivered to local food charities for distribution.  The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is the nation's largest single-day food.  It started in 1993 and, cumulative, over 1.5 billion pounds of food has been collected.  For more information about this program, please click here.  If you have questions about this mission program and would like more information, please click here - we will get back with you soon!
