Post Office Conducts Food Drive


The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold its 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive this Saturday, May 12. Food banks around the country and throughout the Bay Area rely on postal letter carriers to help replenish depleted food stocks in order to continue to feed needy families. 

Last year’s drive resulted in carriers collecting 75.3 million pounds of food from local communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Making a donation is easy.  Customers should leave their non-perishable food donations in a bag near their mailbox on Saturday, May 12, before their letter carrier arrives. In the days leading up to the food drive, letter carriers will be delivering special bags along with the mail that may be used to make donations.
