food drive may 9 2015Here’s our opportunity to Stamp Out Hunger. On Saturday, May 9, thousands of the U.S. Postal Service’s letter carriers—with generous help from countless volunteers—will conduct the 23rd annual “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive. The Letter Carriers’ Food Drive is America’s largest one-day food drive! 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam will participate. Let’s get LOCAL North Delaware! #StampoutHunger

How to Donate

To donate to Stamp Out Hunger, simply place a sturdy box, bag or can of non-perishable food next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail on Saturday, May 9th. The carrier will do the rest. The food is sorted, and delivered to the Food Bank of Delaware as well as local pantries and shelters, where it is available for needy families. Click here to view Frequently Asked Questions
