Help Stamp Out Hunger – Don’t Forget To Leave Food Beside Your Mailbox Saturday
It’s not hard to help. Just leave a few non-perishable food items beside your mailbox on Saturday, May 11th and your mail carrier will pick it up. It’s the National Association of Letter Carriers annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive, which is held on the second Saturday in May. It benefits Feeding America, but the food stays local with Weld Food Bank and the Food Bank For Larimer County.
In 2012, letter carriers collected food donations from 10,000 communities, helping to put millions of meals on the tables of Americans in need. Last year’s drive also marked the ninth consecutive year that people donated more than 70 million pounds of food to the Stamp Out Hungerfood drive.
HERE’S HOW TO HELP:
Leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, peanut butter, rice or cereal, next to your mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 11th.
