Today May 12 is Stamp out hunger
14th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive collects over 70 million pounds of food!Each year, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect non-perishable food items donated by customers for the annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Food Drive—the largest annual one-day food drive in the nation. Postal employees in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands collect food and deliver it to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. An estimated 38 million people face hunger every day in America, including more than 9 million children. This drive is one way to help those right in their own city or town who need help.Long-time supporters of the drive include the U.S. Postal Service, Campbell Soup Company, America’s Second Harvest, local United Ways, Cox Target Media and the AFL-CIO Community Services Network. Since 1993, the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive has collected over three-quarters of a billion pounds of food for community food banks and pantries. for more

when people go hungry ,they more then likely could have been fed with the tons of food thrown out every day . In a country filled with resources ,it’s these resources that are being wasted each and every day and while things may not change over night,it’s up to each of us to recycle and reuse and reduce the amount of waste in today’s environment.
MSW—more commonly known as trash or garbage—consists of everyday items such as product packaging, grass clippings, furniture, clothing, bottles, food scraps, newspapers, appliances, paint, and batteries. To learn more about MSW, view our interactive presentation about Milestones in Garbage: 1990–Present.
In 2005, U.S. residents, businesses, and institutions produced more than 245 million tonsof MSW, which is approximately 4.5 pounds of waste per person per day.
