food banks drive

Did you know that 50 million Americans – including 17 million children – are facing hunger?  Food banks currently feed nearly 6 million people each and every week.  that means they need food.  Each year, on the 2nd Saturday in May, the National Association of Letter Carriers hosts is annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.  This is the 21st year of this event, which truly helps put food on American tables.

It is so simple for you to get involved – and you don’t even have to leave your home!!  Take a look in your pantry and at some of those non-perishable you might have picked up at the store.  Items such as cereal, canned vegetables, peanut butter, etc are great items to donate.   Place those items in a bag and leave it at your mailbox tomorrow morning.  Your letter carrier will pick the items up and they will be delivered to your local food bank.    That’s it!

You don’t have to do much.  Imagine how much food they would have if each person gave one or two items to this cause.  Together we could feed millions of people!  Pass the word by sharing this post!!!
