Get ready for the Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Saturday May 14.
Tomorrow will be the 24th annual event led by the National Association of Letter Carriers.
It is described as America’s largest one-day food drive in the U.S.
Postal customers are asked to leave bags of non-perishable food by our mailboxes well before the regular mail pick-up time. We do not have to have a special food drive bag – it is fine to use whatever bags we have available – paper or plastic are welcomed.
“The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is held annually on the second Saturday in May, a time of year when food bank stocks are dwindling—and it’s just before many school systems end their years, which can often mean a suspension in subsidized meals for many students.
The drive is the largest one-day drive in the United States, taking place in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America. Letter carrier participation in the food drive is strictly voluntary.”
This is from the U.S. Postal Service web site.
“The United States Postal Service, National Association of Letter Carriers, National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, AFL-CIO, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), United Way, Valassis and Valpak Direct Marketing Systems are all supporting this year’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive.”
