Alabama residents can help “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive by participating in the annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Food Drive on Saturday, May 11.
Residents may leave non-perishable food items in a bag by your mailbox for their city or rural letter carrier to pick up during regular mail delivery that day and it will be delivered to food banks and pantries in your community. Suggested non-perishable food items include cereal, dry pasta, pasta sauce, rice, canned fruits, and vegetables, canned meals (such as soups and chili), 100 percent juice, peanut better, macaroni & cheese, canned protein (tuna, chicken, and turkey), beans (canned or dry). All donated items will be taken to food banks and pantries to benefit individuals in need in your community.
“Stamp Out Hunger” is like no other food drive as it allows every community across the country to collectively come together on one day to do their part to fight hunger.
The AFL-CIO, National Association of Letter Carriers, National Rural Letter Carrier’s Association, United Food and Commercial Workers, U.S. Postal Service, United Way, Valassis, Kellogg’s, CVS Health and Valpak are supporting this year’s “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive.
