Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive is this Saturday

News

The Nation’s largest single-day food drive returns this weekend.

Postal workers around the country will perform double duty on Saturday distributing mail and collecting non-perishable goods as part of the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive.

Local letter carriers will deliver special bags to homes across the country so that residents can participate in the food drive.

However, you don’t need the special orange bags to participate.

Residents can fill the bag with non-perishable foods and leave it next to their mailbox before their regular delivery time on Saturday May 12th for letter carriers to collect.

Volunteers will be on site at the post office to accept and sort the food.

Last year, the food drive collected more than 75 million pounds of food nationwide for local food banks.

All of the donations here in mid-Michigan stay in the Greater Lansing community.

For more information on how you can get involved, head to the National Association of Letter Carrier’s website.

From there you can find the phone number to your local post office to call and see if they are participating this year.
