This Saturday, May 12 is ‘Stamp Out Hunger‘ day, a nationwide US Postal Service and Campbell Soup Company food drive for local food banks. It’s easy to participate: on Saturday, put out non-perishable goods by your mailbox for your letter carrier to pick up. The donations will be combined across the city, then split up and divided evenly at every neighborhood food bank.
This will be the 20th annual Stamp Out Hunger, and last year the Postal Service collected over 70 million pound of food across the country. The organizers ask that participants put out, “a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday.”Tweet
