On Saturday May 14th, 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 13 million children, who face hunger every day.
Since 1993, families have donated more than a half-billion pounds of food to Stamp Out Hunger. You can help make this year our most successful ever. Simply place bags filled with nonperishable food items like canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice next to your mailbox on Saturday, May 14th.
Your letter carrier will pick up the bags and deliver them to your local food bank.
Please do not include out-of-date items or those in glass containers.
We participate in this every year, my kids look forward to filling our mail box with food. It gives them an opportunity to learn to give back and feel how happy it makes you when you help others!
