We are excited that Metropolitan Ministries is once again partnering with the NALC for their 31st Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
For over 30 years the National Association of Letter Carries has held a national food drive in May. About 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states participate in this annual event. Letter carriers collect the donations of non-perishable food that people leave by their mail boxes.
Since our partnership, we have received 288,759 pounds of food valued at over $807,000. Nationally, the NALC has collected over one billion pounds of food and counting.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
On Saturday, May 13, you can leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned meat, peanut butter, boxed cereal, rice, beans, canned vegetables, and canned fruit next to their mailbox before the regular mail delivery on Saturday. The food donations stay in each community, going to help local residents.
This year marks the sixth time that Metropolitan Ministries has partnered with NALC locally to receive the donations collected.
KICKOFF EVENT (SAVE THE DATE)
Metropolitan Ministries and NALC will host a kickoff event on Thursday, May 11, 2023, at Metro’s Warehouse at 8:30 am. More details to come.
