USPS Letter Carriers Food Drive, “Stamp Out Hunger”

This April the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute released a report telling us that Worcester gained in ‘food hardship’ and …

One in five households in Worcester now struggle to put meals on the table.

It is easy to participate in “Stamp Out Hunger” – anywhere in America, for it is our country’s largest food drive.

This week peruse through your food cabinet, select nonperishable items (NOT expired) that you would be willing to share – to donate.

Place those food items in a bag or bags. Put the bags in or next to your mailbox early Saturday morning.

Your letter carrier/mail delivery person will collect the donated food and deliver it to a local food pantry or food bank.

In Worcester last year close to 400,000 pounds of food were collected.

And the need continues to grow. THANK YOU for choosing to participate in Stamp Out Hunger!
