Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive May 10

The National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive will be conducted May 10.

Each year, on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers across the country collect nonperishable food donations from residents that go directly to local food pantries.

The Associated Churches Neighborhood Food Network uses the food to help people in the Fort Wayne area.

Last year, the National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive collected more than 74.4 million pounds of food nationwide – the second-highest amount since the drive began in 1992 – feeding an estimated 30 million people.

To participate, leave a nonperishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox May 10, and it will be picked up your letter carrier.
