The 24th annual Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive is on May 14 this year. The food drive, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), is the world’s largest one-day food drive, taking place in more than 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.
Participating in the food drive couldn’t be easier. Before their regular mail pickup on Saturday, May 14 postal customers are asked to leave bags of non-perishable food items by their mailboxes. Letter carriers will pick up the bags and — with help from retired letter carriers, other postal employees and countless volunteers — deliver the bags to local food agencies.
