This year, the UFCW is once again partnering with the National Association of Letter Carriers to sponsor the 31st annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive on Saturday, May 13. This campaign, which is the largest single-day food drive in the country, is an opportunity for UFCW locals to make a positive difference in the lives of millions of America’s families who are suffering from the effects of hunger.
According to Feeding America, over 34 million people in the U.S., including 9 million children, are coping with food insecurity—which is why the Stamp Out Hunger food drive is so important. This food drive donates millions of pounds of food at a critical time when many food banks and shelters have either closed or are struggling as the pandemic and economic disruptions continue.
During the past few years, UFCW locals from across the country helped to collect millions of pounds of food for this campaign. This year, we are encouraging all UFCW locals and their members to get involved in this food drive by collecting unopened, non-perishable food and placing the items in a bag next to their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers their mail on Saturday, May 13.
Help us make this year’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive a success. Together, we can show our brothers and sisters who are struggling to feed their families that they are not alone, and make a positive difference in the communities we call home. You can get more information about the Stamp Out Hunger food drive here. The Communications Department has created materials to help locals spread the word about the food drive here. Locals are encouraged to send photos of Stamp Out Hunger events to Julie Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
