Stamp Out Hunger
Help us Stamp Out Hunger on Saturday, May 11!

It’s easy!
Search through your cupboards or pick up some non-perishable food items during your next trip to the grocery store.  Some of our most needed food items include peanut butter, canned vegetables, canned fruits, cereals, canned soups, macaroni and cheese, and canned meat products such as tuna, chicken, spaghetti and meat balls and beef stew.

Place your food donations in a sturdy bag and leave it next to your mailbox prior to regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 11.

Your letter carrier will kindly pick up your donation while delivering the mail, then bring it to the Freestore Foodbank and some of our community partner agencies to help our hungry neighbors.

Be a part of something big!
Stamp Out Hunger is the nation’s largest single-day food drive. 27 years in the making, it has collected more than 1.6 billion pounds of food nationally.
