Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day
EUSTIS, Fla. (May 8, 2018) – Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America participate in the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive — known as the largest one-day food drive in the nation. With the help of letter carriers, other postal employees and volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food in the past 25 years. Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices by delivering them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. Nearly 1,500 NALC branches participate in all 50 states, including the City of Eustis.
The City of Eustis declared this Saturday, May 12 as Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day. The National Association of Letter Carriers and City of Eustis will be participating in Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day to help collect non-perishable food donations.
To donate, just place a box or can of non-perishable food next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail this Saturday, May, 12. The carrier will do the rest. The food will be sorted and delivered to the Agape Ministries food pantry here in Eustis. With 42 million people facing hunger every day in America, including 13 million children, this drive is one way we can help those in need.
