Letter Carrier Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct its 26th Annual National Food Drive on Saturday, May 12.
The Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive, the country’s largest single-day food drive, provides residents with an easy way to donate food to those in need.
Last year, letter carriers collected a record 80.1 million pounds of food donations along their postal routes. That brought the total since NALC’s food drive began in 1993 to more than 1.5 billion pounds.
Customers simply leave their donation of non-perishable goods next to their mailbox before the delivery of the mail on Saturday, May 12. Letter carriers will collect these food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes, and distribute them to local food agencies.
