The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct its 27th annual Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive on May 11th, the country’s largest single-day food drive.
Food collected by carriers in Kenosha County will be distributed to a countywide network of 4 food pantries serving Kenosha county families: Sharing Center, Inc., 1Hope.Community, Shalom Center of the Interfaith Network, and Salvation Army Kenosha.
Countywide post offices participating in this event include Bristol, Kenosha, Pleasant Prairie, Salem, Silver Lake, Trevor, and Wilmot.
Healthy foods every pantry needs:
– Peanut butter
– Canned fruit (in juice)
– Canned tuna and chicken
– Soup (low sodium)
This food drive is an easy way to donate food to those in need: customers simply leave their donation of non-perishable goods next to their mailbox before the delivery of the mail on Saturday, May 11. Letter carriers will collect these food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes.
Forget to put your donation by your mailbox May 11? Deliver directly to your local participating post office or pantry, or leave at your mailbox Monday, May 13.
