May 11 / Benefits Our Local Food Banks
The National Association of Letter Carriers collects food donations in order to provide assistance to the millions of Americans who are struggling with hunger.
Helping Stamp Out Hunger is as easy as checking your mailbox. Just leave a bag of non-perishable food items by your mailbox on Saturday, May 11. Your letter carrier will then pick up and deliver the food to a local food bank.
Examples of non-perishable items include:
– Peanut butter
– Canned soup
– Canned meats and fish
– Canned vegetables, fruits and juices
– Boxed goods (such as cereal)
– Pasta and rice
