Dothan – (WDNews) The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) is gearing up for its annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, scheduled for Saturday, May 11. This nationwide initiative, now in its thirty-second year, encourages customers of the United States Postal Service (USPS) to contribute non-perishable food items for donation.

Since its inception, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has made a significant impact, with over 1.9 billion pounds of food collected and donated to date. This event serves as a vital source of support for communities across the country, particularly those facing food insecurity.

Participation in the food drive is simple and accessible to all. Customers are encouraged to leave non-perishable food items in a bag by their mailbox on the designated day, and USPS letter carriers will collect and deliver the donations to local food pantries.

Not sure what to donate? Consider including items such as cereal, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meals (such as soups, chili, and pasta), 100% juice, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, canned protein (tuna, chicken, and turkey), and beans.

As the nation continues to navigate challenges related to food insecurity, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive remains a crucial avenue for individuals and communities to come together in support of those in need. Make a difference this May 11 by joining the effort to stamp out hunger in your community.
