Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Leave Groceries for Your Letter Carrier to Pickup This Saturday


Fact: 1 in 6 Americans today is facing hunger

With shocking statistics like that I hope everyone remembers that this weekend isn't just Mother's Day. Actually the day before is the 20th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. That's right. On Saturday, May 12 across America residents can expect their regular mailman or mail woman to stop by during their regular delivery to also collect food. These care packages will then be delivered to a variety of local organizations for distribution to families who otherwise might go hungry.

 It's simple to help make a difference by donating edible items
  • Gather and bag non-perishable food such as canned foods, pasta, cereal and rice
  • Leave packed food bag(s) next to your mailbox for pickup by the neighborhood letter carrier who will make sure your donations are delivered to a local food bank or pantry
Three easy ways you can use social media to spread the word about this good cause
