2013 Stamp Out Hunger May 11!
Tomorrow is the day to set out non-perishable food for your mailman/woman to pick up!
This annual event is in its 21st year. It is the largest nationwide one day event for collecting food.
The National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive supports local charities in the states where the food is collected.
People are asked to put their donations in a sturdy bag by their mail boxes. Donations can also be made at the local post offices.
For the past 9 years, over 70 million pounds of food was collected nationwide. Sadly, as our economy continues to try to recover, the need for food at food pantries only increases each year.
Items to include: Dried beans, pasta, rice and cereal. Canned goods such as vegetables, fruits, ravioli, tuna, chicken and soups. Peanut butter, jellies and Jam, honey or other condiments. Personal hygiene items and paper goods such as toilet paper and baby wipes.
This year, won't you help, STAMP OUT HUNGER?
