Stamp Out Hunger Campaign Brings in Thousands of Donations

Letter Carrier Olympics 2018

Each year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers across the country collect non-perishable food donations from customers. The National Association of Letter Carriers kicks off its annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive Saturday.

Letter Carriers picked up non-perishable food items as they delivered mail along their postal routes. The food bank feeds over 200,000 people a year and they say the food from Stamp Out Hunger is necessary to continue their work, especially at this point in the year. It comes at a time when food pantries start to be depleted and stock needs to be rebuilt.

All you have to do it leave the items by your mailbox and they'll pick them up.

"Especially with the smaller food banks that they give to, they really count on this for the donations".

Don't forget to put out a bag of food on Saturday, says the Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County Food Bank. Within the local network, more than 26,500 pounds of food was collected previous year. In Vienna, carriers will be dropping food off at the Wayside United Methodist Church where it also will be weighed, sorted then donated to Good Samaritan Center. That was the third-highest amount since the food drive began in 1993. "We've always done a food drive in November with the Kiwanis Clubs helping us", said Robin Maness of the Valley Post Office. It was the ninth year the Lake Forest-based credit union had sponsored food bags for the mail carriers to distribute in the local Santa Ana Postal District that serves most of Orange County.

Our community has shown many times that it is willing to help out when necessary.
