Stamp Out Hunger 2012

Today is the National Association of Letter Carriers annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.  Join with your local postal carrier and the US Postal Service in their 20th year supporting local food pantries!

Stamp Out Hunger has become our nations largest one-day food drive and benefits Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization.  Last year, letter carries throughout the country collected 70.2 million pounds of food.  Thanks to everyone's generous support, it was the eighth consecutive year that they were able to collect over 70 million pounds of food.

To participate, just leave non-perishable, non-breakable (please no glass containers!) food items next to your mailbox today, May 12, and your postal carrier will take care of the rest!
