Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive 2019

About This Campaign

On Saturday, May 11th, 2019, the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive celebrates its 27th year helping the hungry.

For more than 20 years, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) has conducted an annual nationwide food drive on the second Saturday in May. Using the unparalleled postal networks, letter carriers collect non-perishable food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal route.

Here are a few things to remember on your volunteer day:
1) Wear closed-toe shoes and dress in layers. Our warehouse is not climate controlled, and there is heavy equipment. Please dress appropriately and safely. Also, if needed, wear glasses, as you will be reading food labels!

2) For safety reasons, the minimum age for volunteering is eight years old. Minors under 16 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone. We require one adult for every 6 children.

3) HAVE FUN! We love meeting new people, listening to stories, and working together to have a hunger-free community! Our team at the Community Food Bank is proud to work with you

Volunteers are needed to help unload the mail carrier vans and sort through the donated food items so they are ready for distribution to our partnering agencies.

Thank you for giving your time to help neighbors at risk of hunger in our community!
