May 2015: National Association of Letter Carriers’ 23rd Annual “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive

Mail customers are asked to put nonperishable food items in a sack, and place it right by their mailbox first thing Saturday morning, May 9. (Cloth bags or boxes are also fine.)

It’s a simple way for people to help others in need. Thousands of our neighbors, including children, are considered “food insecure”, meaning they don’t often know where their next meal will come from. Food banks and shelters that benefit from increased donations during the winter holiday season often have critically low-levels of food by springtime.
