For 30 years, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) has conducted an annual nationwide food drive, collecting non-perishable food donations along postal routes. The Stamp Out Hunger food drive returns this spring on Saturday, May 14, 2022! St. Mary’s food bank is honored to be the recipient of this noble, national food drive.
Traditionally, the in-person food drive has been held on the second Saturday in May. For the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person food drive has been cancelled for safety and health reasons. This year, plans are underway to tentatively hold the traditional, in-person food drive on Saturday, May 14, 2022. NALC will continue to monitor the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and if necessary, modify or cancel the 2022 food drive. For future updates on the food drive, check nalc.org or follow the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Facebook and Twitter.
Remind your family, friends, and neighbors to leave a bag of nonperishable food by their mailbox on Saturday, May 14, and their letter carrier will handle the rest! All donated food stays within the local community. Learn more: nalc-info.org/food-drive
