May 8th: Help Stamp Out Hunger
Have you been thinking about donating to your local food bank? Well, your mail carrier is about to make it a lot easier. On May 8th, you can take part in Stamp Out Hunger, the nation’s largest single day food drive. Letter carriers in more than 10,000 communities will collect food items and deliver them to local food banks to help some of the millions of Americans, including an estimated 16.7 million children who face hunger every day.
Here’s how you can help:
- Contact your local post office to verify its participation in the food drive. ( Search the USPS website for the contact information for your local post office.)
- Place bags filled with non-perishable food items next to your mailbox (donate items like canned meat, fish, vegetables, soup, juice, rice and cereal. Please do not include expired items or those in glass containers)
- Your letter carrier will pick them up and deliver them to local food banks!
