stamp out hunger

This Saturday, May 10th, is the 22nd anniversary of the Stamp Out Hunger food drive! Stamp Out Hunger is a project by the National Association of Letter Carriers looking to serve those in our communities who are hungry.

How it Works:

1. This Saturday, place a plastic bag of non-perishable food items next to your mailbox.
2. Your postal carrier will pick up the bag and it will be delivered to a local food bank or charity in your community.

You may receive a designated bag for the food drive in your mail prior to Saturday, but if not, it’s okay! Simply use a regular plastic grocery bag to hold your food items. Plus, if you’ve got a nice stockpile from couponing, it’ll be super easy to fill your bag and help others!

Some suggested items include:

-canned fruits & vegetables
-canned meats
-cereal
-rice & pasta
-peanut butter
-spaghetti sauce
-any shelf stable item

For more information on this food drive, head to Stamp Out Hunger’s facebook page.

      Along with above suggestions, I suggest including spices in your donation, because everyone thinks to donate pasta, but never spices. Spices are what makes food even more delicious (who wants to eat just a bowl of rice and beans without any seasoning?).
      Candy and other “treat” items can be nice too, as those on tight budgets typically don’t get to treat themselves either.
      Of course, these are just suggestions, so you can donate what you want, but these items are a nice variation for the regular pasta and canned good rations most people get from food drives.

      Dont forget to think about where you live too. I’m in South FL and its insanely hot (like 94 degrees with the heat index) and since my mail sometimes comes on Saturdays at 12 noon and sometimes 5:30, I can’t put out items that would be damaged by the heat outside. I have so much chocolate I could donate but it will last 5 minutes outside by the mailbox….. :(
