The National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Saturday, May 13
LOUISIANA – The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct its 31st annual national food drive on Saturday, May 13.
Letter Carriers will join forces with communities to help fight hunger across Louisiana. The Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive provides residents with an easy way to donate food to those in need in the community.
Post offices will be collecting food items to be donated to local pantries. Volunteers then sort through donated items to distribute them back out to the community to help feed families in need.
To participate, residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 13. Your letter carrier will take care of the rest.
Millions of Americans live in challenging situations, uncertain of where their next meal will come from or if it will come at all. They’re our customers, our neighbors, and our families. They include children and seniors we see along our routes every day. Some household members may have lost a job, are facing a serious medical condition, or are dealing with an unexpected responsibility of caring for grandchildren.
Sadly, one in five households needing help with food is home to a military veteran. So often, this food drive makes a positive difference for them.
With over 30 years of letter carriers’ commitment to the nation’s largest single-day food drive, our communities are still in need across the country. But together, we can end hunger in our community.
