The second Saturday in May is Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day, the largest one-day food drive in the nation. It occurs in more than 10,000 cities and towns, and the food is collected by those men and women carrying our mail across the country. This year's observance in May 12.

As they deliver to you mail order parts, bills and postcards, you get to do your part by filling their mailbag with non-perishable food donations.

Over the last 20 years, one billion pounds of food has been delivered by this drive which is sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. The letter carriers representing the NALC receive help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers. The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has received a number of accolades over the years, including two Presidential Certificates of Achievement.

Volunteer your time at your local post office to sort food gathered for the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Visit either of the following sites for more information on how to participate: nalc.org or usps.com. Use #StampOutHungerFoodDrive to show your support for this worthy cause.
