Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive delivers for needy families

THANKING UNION MEMBERS and everyone in the bi-state region for their support of the 2022 national “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive on May 14, National Association of Letter Carriers Local 343 Executive Board member Pamela Stepney spoke to delegates of the St. Louis Labor Council on May 17 hailing the success of this year’s drive. Although collection totals are still being compiled across America, in St. Louis, as of May 20, over 170,000 pounds of food had been collected, enough to feed 89,863 meals. Since the first drive was held in 1993, almost two billion pounds of food have been collected. This year’s national results are not available yet. This is the first year the drive has been held under normal conditions since 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic. National partners in this year’s drive include the U.S. Postal Service, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, Vericast, United Way Worldwide, the AFL-CIO, Valpak, Kellogg Co. and CVS Health. – Labor Tribune photo
