You can fight hunger in America, and it’s easy to do
On Saturday, May 14, 2016, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will help “Stamp Out Hunger” across the nation in the 24th year of the largest one-day food drive in America. All food collected stays local, and last year letter carriers collected 70.6 million pounds of it – 1.3 billion since 1992 – in thousands of communities, helping to put millions of meals on the tables of Americans in need.
What: Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger nationwide food drive
When: Saturday, May 14, 2016
Where: Mailboxes everywhere in America
Here’s how it works
To take part in the Stamp Out Hunger food drive, leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods – such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, peanut butter, rice or cereal – next to your mailbox before the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 14.
The nation’s 175,000 letter carriers, representing nearly 1,500 NALC branches in more than 10,000 communities, will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to a local food bank or hunger-relief organization.
