Below: Three Opportunities to Stand with Our Labor Allies

 Annual Letter Carriers  'Stamp Out Hunger' Food Drive

Your letter carrier will pick up donations of non-perishable food tomorrow, Saturday, May 11 as part of the 21st annual "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive, the largest annual food collection day in the United States. So you can donate to your local food pantry without leaving home!  Just leave non-perishable food items by your mail box with a note -- no postage necessary!

In 2012, the drive, sponsored by the Letter Carriers (NALC), collected more than 70 million pounds of food and it has collected nearly 1.2 billion pounds of food since it began in 1993. Donations are given directly to local food pantries and, in 2012, these donations served some 30 million people. While most food pantries get the bulk of their donations around Christmas and Thanksgiving, the NALC drive is done during the spring, when many food pantries are struggling.
