20th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Saturday, May 12th

Join us for the nation’s largest single-day food drive. For the 20th year in a row, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) are Stamping Out Hunger

What is Stamp Out Hunger?
The Stamp Out Hunger! food drive is a nationwide effort to provide food to local food banks and pantries, which would otherwise have depleted stocks during the summer months, to help feed those in need year round.

The nation’s 230,000 letter carriers will be collecting food donations in more than 10,000 local communities and delivering them to local food banks and other hunger relief organizations.

Last year, despite many obstacles, letter carriers proudly collected 70.2 million pounds of food, raising the total amount of donations picked up over the history of the drive to more than 1.1 billion pounds.

How Can You Help?
Helping Stamp Out Hunger! in Philadelphia is as easy as checking your mailbox. Just leave a bag of non-perishable food where your letter carrier normally delivers your mail. Your letter carrier will then pick up and deliver the food to a local food bank.
