Stamp Out Hunger

Posted: Updated:

The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will participate in Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday.  Texomans are being asked to leave a bag of non-perishable items by your mailbox.  The letter carriers will then deliver the donation to local food banks.

This is the 21st year for the nation's largest one-day food drive.   Last year carriers collected food donations from 10,000 communities, helping out millions of meals in the tables of Americans in need.

NALC president Fredric Rolando said 16 percent of all Americans are at risk of hunger, uncertain where their next meal may be coming from. That includes one in five children under the age of 18, plus 4 million seniors who are forced every day to choose between paying a utility bill and buying food.
