Letter Carriers Food Drive
May 12 @ 7:00 am – 5:00 pm

The National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Letter carriers walk through the community every day,often coming face to face with a sad reality for too many, hunger.

So, each year on the second Saturday in may, letter carriers across the country collect non-perishable food donations from customers. These donations go directly to local food pantries to provide food to people in Elko County who need help.

Last year, 75 million pounds of food was collected nationally, feeding an estimated 64 million people. Over the course of its 25 year history, the drive has collected approximately 1.6 billion pounds of food, thanks to a postal service universal delivery network the entire nation, including Puerto Rio, Guam, and US Virgin Islands.

The need for food donations is great. Currently 49 million Americans – 1 in 6 – are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Thirteen million are children who feel hunger’s impact on their overall health and ability to perform in school. And nearly 5 million seniors over age 60 are food insecure, with many who live on fixed incomes often too embarrassed to ask for help.

The food drive’s timing is crucial. Food banks and pantries often receive the majority of their donations during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season. By springtime, many pantries are depleted, entering the summer low on supplies at a time when many school breakfast and lunch programs are not available to children in need.

Participating in this year’s Letter Carrier Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is simple. Just leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox on Saturday, May 12th and your letter carrier will do the rest. Join in America’s great day of giving and help the fight to end hunger.
