Stamp out Hunger!

Saturday, May 11th is the annual STAMP OUT HUNGER FOOD DRIVE! 

For the 21st year, Campbell has teamed up with the National Association of Letter Carriers to collect food donations in order to provide food to the millions of Americans who are struggling with hunger. This is the largest one-day food drive held in the country and the simplest too. All you have to do is collect non-perishable food items in a bag and leave at your mailbox on Saturday, May 11th. Your mail carrier will pick up and deliver the food to a local food bank. How easy is that?

My family and I participate in this food drive every year. I have the kids help me collect the food items and place outside by the mailbox. It teaches them to help out their community. 

Some examples of non-perishable items that can be included in your bag are:
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned soup
  • Canned meats and fish
  • Canned vegetables, fruits and juices
  • Boxed goods (such as cereal
  • Pasta and Rice
In 2012, more than 70 million pounds of food were collected. Campbell Soup Company will kick off this year’s food drive with a pledge to donate one million pounds of food to Feeding America member food banks.

Please participate, it only takes a few minutes to go into your pantry or cupboard and pull out a few items to donate. 

For more information about the annual Stamp Out Hungerfood drive, ask your letter carrier, contact your local 
post office or visit either or, and follow
