The IAM is joining the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) to help collect donated food in more than 10,000 communities across the country. The 30th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is set for Saturday, May 14, 2022.
Just leave non-perishable food donations next to your mailbox on May 14 and your mail carrier will take care of the rest. Donations will stay in your community to help those who do not have enough to eat.
Access to nutritionally adequate and safe food is limited or uncertain for 1 in 6 Americans. Many households include single working parents with young children, grandparents helping to raise their grandchildren, college students or households with one parent actively serving in the military.
With more than 50 million people facing hunger every day in America, including nearly 17 million children, this drive is one way you can help those in your community who need help.
If you or your local lodge wants to become more involved, visit the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive Tool Kit webpage by clicking here. On the site, you can help NALC by purchasing union-made grocery distribution bags, print out food drive posters and flyers, and contact your local NALC food drive coordinator.
Capture your hard work on or before Saturday, May 14, by sharing your best photos on social media with the hashtag #StampOutHunger. Your pictures could get posted on one of the official food drive accounts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
