Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Postponed
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) has postponed the annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. The national food drive was scheduled for Saturday, May 9. A new date has not yet been scheduled.
Statement from the NALC:
NALC and our national partners recognize that food assistance is a critical need for many during this difficult time, and we remain committed to helping those in need in the communities we serve across America. We look forward to once again holding the largest one-day food drive in America when it is safe to do so.
The Regional Food Bank worked with local NALC officials to coordinate food drives and the distribution of collected food within its 53-county service area. In 2019, nearly 600,000 pounds of shelf-stable food was collected to benefit the Regional Food Bank and its partner agencies.
