Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

The 24th annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive will take place in 2016 on its traditional second Saturday in May: Saturday, May 14.

This food drive is the largest one-day food drive in the United States. Just place a bag (or bags) of non-perishable food items by your mailbox before your regular mail pickup on Saturday, May 14, and your letter carrier will do the rest. And all food remains in the community from which it was collected, to help stock local food pantries and other food charities.

In 2015, active and retired letter carriers, along with their family members and friends—not to mention countless volunteers—collected almost 71 million pounds of non-perishable food.

These results brought the grand total to more than 1.4 billion pounds since the drive began in 1992.

Suggested donations include:

  • Canned meats such as tuna, salmon, chicken, turkey and ham
  • Canned chunky soups and stews
  • Canned beans, fruits and vegetables
  • New, unopened plastic containers of peanut butter and jelly
  • Dry goods such as cereal, rice and coffee
