The 25th Annual National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is coming up, and we are asking everyone in the Southeastern Virginia community and the Eastern Shore to take part in the nationwide, one day event. It’s simple to participate- all you need to do is fill a plastic bag with non-perishable items and leave it at your mailbox the morning of May 13, 2017, for your letter carrier to pick up. The letter carriers will then deliver all food collected to the Foodbank!
Last year, 136,000 pounds of food was donated, which equates to 113,300 meals. Since 2004, 1,277,700 meals have been provided through this event. And, this food comes at a crucial time. As we near summer vacation, the need for food increases. Many students receive free and reduced price lunch during the school year and lose these meals when school lets out for summer. This is where the Foodbank steps in, and you step in. We can help supplement for the missed meals through our partner agencies and summer feeding sites.
Expect your Food Lion Sponsored “Stamp Out Hunger” bag in the mail the week of 5/8!
If you aren’t able to donate food, but would still like to make a difference, please consider donating online. With just $10, we can purchase up to $60 of grocery products!
