LOUISVILLE'S LETTER CARRIERS CELEBRATE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF STAMP OUT HUNGER FOOD DRIVE
Nation's Largest Single-day Food Drive Collected 70.2 Million Pounds of Food Last Year
On Saturday, May 12, 2012, Campbell Soup company will join forces with the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) to help Stamp Out Hunger in Kentuckiana. Now in its 20th year, the annual food drive has grown from a regional to a national effort that provides assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.
The Stamp Out Hunger food drive, held on the second Saturday in May, has become the nation's largest single-day food drive benefiting Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. In 2011, American letter carriers collected 70.2 million pounds of food. "We're incredibly excited for the 20th anniversary of the Stamp Out Hunger food drive," said Fredric V. Rolando, NALC president. "We're asking people across the country for their support to make this year's drive the most successful in its history."
The need for food assistance in Kentuckiana continues at record levels. "One in six families in Kentuckiana need our help to have life's most basic need," said Brian Riendeau, Dare to Care Executive Director. "Great community support, like that expressed through Stamp Out Hunger, helps all these families have a chance at a healthy future."
To participate in the 20th Stamp Out Hunger food drive, residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, or cereal, next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 12. Louisville's letter carriers will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to Dare to Care Food Bank. For more information, click here.
Dare to Care food Bank is a local nonprofit agency with a mission to lead the community to feed the hungry and conquer the cycle of need. In the past twelve months, Dare to Care distributed over 13 million meals to nearly 200,000 different people in eight Kentucky and five Indiana counties. Dare to Care also operates 13 Kids Cafes in neighborhood afterschool locations and Backpack Buddy weekend nutrition programs in 44 Kentuckiana elementary schools. More information by clicking here.
