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
