Saturday, May 12th the United States Postal Service is working to Stamp Out Hunger. Local letter carriers will be picking up nonperishable food donations right at your mailbox starting at 9 a.m.

Don't wait! The earlier the better! 

You’ve heard of the Postal Service’s unofficial motto: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. So, of course your letter carrier will pick up and deliver your mail as usual on Food Drive Day, no matter what the weather may be.

Plastic bags tend to hold up better in wet weather.

Letter carriers try to touch every single mail box in America during the Food Drive.

It’s an effort to raise national awareness about the real, ongoing problem of hunger in every community, and it’s a sincere attempt to use our unique delivery network to do something about it. 

All food donations stay local and the food goes back to the hungry in our local community. 

The top requested non-perishable food items are: cereal, pasta, pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meals (such as soups, chili and pasta), 100% juice, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, canned protein (tuna, chicken and turkey), beans (canned or dry). You also can donate healthy, low-sodium, low-sugar items such as beans, oatmeal and other whole grains, and canola or olive oil.

Do not donate frozen food, homemade food or home-canned items.
