The National Association of Letter Carriers’ (NALC) 31st annual “Stamp Out Hunger” nationwide food drive will take place May 13 this year.

The nationwide effort asks postal customers to leave bags of food by their mailboxes for their letter carriers to collect and also features collection boxes at post offices and donation bins in multi-unit buildings.

Its aim, as always, is to deliver canned goods, cereals, pasta and other non-perishable items to area food banks, pantries, food kitchens and homeless shelters.

Donations to the annual food drive help feed one of every eight people in the U.S. who don’t get enough to eat, according to the Food Research and Action Center.

National partners in this year’s drive include the U.S. Postal Service, National Letter Carriers Association, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, AFL-CIO, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, Vericast, United Way Worldwide, Valpak, Vericast, Kellogg Co. and CVS Health.

All donations to the Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive are tax-deductible because all of the food collected on Food Drive Day is given directly to non-profit charity food agencies in the community where the food was collected.

For more information on the food drive, including how to deduct your donation, visit the NALC website at www.nalc.org.
