Stamp out hunger 2018

National Association of Letter Carriers

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive 
Saturday, May 12, 2018

We're partnering again with the National Association of Letter Carriers to take part in the largest one-day food drive in the country! Leading up to May 12, local letter carriers will distribute plastic bags for residents to fill with canned foods and dry goods. On Saturday, May 12th, the public is asked to leave the bags by their mailboxes for local letter carriers to collect. Once the letter carriers return to their Post Office, volunteers are on site to unload the food from the postal trucks, sort the food, and load it into Food Bank trucks returning to our six branches.

Last year we collected over 354,343 meals from the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. A special thank you also goes to our hardworking Letter Carriers who go the extra mile to support hunger relief!
