Stamp Out Hunger food drive

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) – Post Offices throughout Tennessee and northern Georgia are asking for the community’s support on May 9th as they join America’s letter carriers and Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Hosted each year by the National Association of Letter Carriers, Stamp Out Hunger is the largest single-day food drive in the country. The event helps to support local food banks and the one in six Americans who struggle with hunger.

Residents can join the Postal Service and letter carriers and support community members who struggle with hunger by simple collecting non-perishable food items and leaving them in a sturdy bag near their mailboxes on May 9. A letter carrier will collect the donations and deliver them to local food banks and pantries. Items will then be distributed to those facing hunger in area communities. 

The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is held in 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam. Last year, letter carriers collected over 70 million pounds of food donations to be donated to their local food bank and pantries.
