Stamp Out Hunger

By Jodi Lee April 9, 2019

The 27th annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive is on Saturday, May 11!

Spring has finally sprung! But while the warmer weather is great for enjoying the outdoors, it also signals that summer is on its way – a time that when the meals many kids rely on at school are no longer available, and family food budgets are stretched farther than at any other point in the year.
To help families in need by boosting food donations, the United States Postal Service will once again host its Annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive on Saturday, May 11. Whatever is on your agenda that weekend, it takes only a moment to help make a big difference for your neighbors. To participate, just leave a bag or two of canned, boxed, or other nonperishable items at your door for your local mail carrier, who will come and pick them up.
To make an even bigger impact, get your friends involved, post a reminder on your social sites, and remind your neighbors. Last year this drive provided enough food for almost 60,000 meals for our neighbors, and this year we can make an even bigger difference together.
