Postal companies across 10,000 cities in the USA are to participate in the National Association of Letter Carriers’ (NALC) 25th national Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive this weekend (May 13).
Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. The drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 24 years.
The United States Postal Service, National Association of Letter Carriers, National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, AFL-CIO, Feeding America, United Way, Valassis and Valpak Direct Marketing Systems are all supporting this year’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
If customers wish to donate to the cause, they can place a box or can of non-perishable food next to their mailbox before their letter carrier arrives on Saturday. The carrier will then sort the food, which will be distributed to a local food bank or pantry.
