Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Stamp Out Hunger!

Stamp Out Hunger is the largest one-day food drive in the United States. In 2015, active and retired letter carriers, along with their family members and friends—not to mention countless volunteers—collected almost 71 million pounds of non-perishable food. These results brought the grand total to more than 1.4 billion pounds since the drive began in 1992.

This year’s 24th annual drive will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2016. All you need to do is leave a bag of non-perishable food on your porch that morning and your letter carrier will do the rest. Be sure to set out your non-perishable food well before your letter carrier’s normal pick-up time. Note that he or she will be delivering and collecting mail as usual, on top of collecting food donations, so that pickup time could be slightly later than usual.

All food collected stays local and helps to feed our hungry neighbors here in Southeast Michigan.
