Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive set for May 11

The National Association of Letter Carriers’ (NALC) “Stamp Out Hunger” nationwide food drive is scheduled for May 11 this year, and letter carriers are asking for your help.

Each year, letter carriers across the country head out on their routes on the second Saturday in May to collect donations of non-perishable food items to benefit local food pantries.

The campaign, which began in 1993, has grown into the nation’s largest one-day food drive, helping to fill the shelves of food banks in cities and towns throughout the United States.

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, 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.

To help, simply leave a bag of non-perishable items by your mailbox on May 11 and your letter carrier will do the rest. To make a cash donation, nalc.org/community-service/food-drive/find-your-food-bank.
