Food Drive -- May 14

Food drive pin

Feeding America, USPS, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), the National Rural Letter Carriers Association (NRLCA) and Campbell Soup Company are gearing up for the annual food drive to “Stamp Out Hunger” on Saturday, May 14.

Now in its 19th year, the “Stamp Out Hunger” campaign has become the nation’s largest single-day food drive. In 2010, letter carriers collected a record-setting total of more than 77 million pounds of food donations along their postal routes, pushing the 18-year total to more than 1 billion pounds of food.

Customers can place a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods next to their mailboxes prior to their regular mail delivery May 14.
