Stamp Out Hunger
Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation.
Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 25 years.
NBC 15 and Gulf Coast Today helped to sort and load nonperishable food items that were to be donated.
With 42 million people facing hunger every day in America, including 13 million children, this drive is one way you can help those in your own city or town who need help.
