On Saturday, May 8, letter carriers around the country will host the nation’s largest single-day food drive as part of the National Association of Letter Carriers ( Stamp Out Hunger! effort. Now in its 18th year, Stamp Out Hunger! has collected more than 1.9 million pounds of food since its inception in 1993. Locally, Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana residents are invited to participate in the effort by simply leaving a sturdy bag containing canned goods or non-perishable foods next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 8. Staple items such as canned meat products (tuna, chicken, ham, spaghetti with meatballs, etc.), peanut butter, canned vegetables and fruits, soups, and macaroni and cheese are particularly needed. Food items should be in non-breakable containers, such as boxes and cans. Local letter carriers will collect donations from homes throughout the region and deliver them to the Freestore Foodbank. There, the food will be distributed through a network of more than 350 nonprofit partner agencies serving the Freestore Foodbank’s 20 county distribution area. Last year, local letter carriers collected more than 155,000 pounds of food for the Freestore Foodbank during the food drive. This represents the largest volume of food the Freestore Foodbank receives from any local food drive.
