Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive May 12

May 3rd, 2018 | Category: News

BELLINGHAM – The Stamp Out Hunger Food drive is coming up Saturday, May 12, when letter carriers collect donated food for food banks and hunger relief organizations. This is the nation’s largest all-volunteer one-day food collection effort, held annually on the second Saturday in May and is a community outreach effort of the National Association of Letter Carriers. Locally, this is one of the largest drives in our northwest corner. Last year in Bellingham, The Stamp Out Hunger food drive collected 71 million pounds. Bellingham letter carriers typically bring in over 30 tons of food to the food bank, according to the Bellingham Food Bank. In Stanwood-Camano, letter carriers are collecting for the 26th year.  For more about the annual drive, see https://www.nalc.org/community-service/food-drive.
