USPS: Stamp Out Hunger

USPS Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

[ This Event Has Ended ]

The National Association of Letter Carriers hosts the Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive on the second Saturday in May each year, marking the nation’s largest single-day food drive since its inception in 1993. Letter carriers across the United States collect non-perishable food donations along their routes, which are then directed to local food banks. The initiative encourages community participation by simply leaving a bag of non-perishable food near one’s mailbox for collection by their letter carrier.

The food donations collected during the Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive are vital in addressing local hunger issues. Communities like Fond du Lac benefit significantly as the collected items are distributed to area food banks, helping those in immediate need. This initiative not only supports the hungry but also strengthens community ties through collective action.
