On Saturday, May 13—for the 25th year in a row!—the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive will once again spread out across America to help provide assistance to Americans who are struggling with hunger.
Just leave a bag (or bags) of non-perishable food by your mailbox before your regular mail pick-up on Saturday May 13, and your letter carrier will do the rest. All food collected goes directly to food banks and pantries in your local community.
The Food Drive effort is the nation's largest single-day drive. In 2016, 80 million pounds of food was collected, which brought the grand total of donations to more than 1.5 billion pounds of food collected since the first national food drive in 1993.
