Every year, amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's easy to overlook certain important events. However, a timely reminder can spark a wave of community action. Recently, one of our Townsquare affiliates in Montana took to social media to ensure nobody missed out on a significant occasion approaching rapidly.

In North Dakota, letter carriers are gearing up to make a significant impact during the second weekend of May—the annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. For the past three decades, the National Association of Letter Carriers' initiative has been a ray of hope for neighborhood food banks.

Stamp Out Hunger Details

Scheduled for May 11th, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive mobilizes mail carriers to collect non-perishable food items left by generous donors outside their mailboxes along delivery routes. These items are then dutifully transported to local food banks, where they become vital resources for those in need.

Participation couldn't be simpler: gather a selection of non-perishable food items, place them in a sturdy grocery sack, and leave them out by your mailbox on the designated day. This straightforward act of kindness contributes significantly to alleviating hunger within communities.

Making a Difference in Community Support

Our local Food Bank has outlined their most urgently needed items, including breakfast cereal, pasta sauce, peanut butter and jelly, canned fruits and vegetables, assorted canned goods, and stews and soups, highlighting the diverse range of necessities that can make a meaningful difference in someone's life.

As communities come together to support this noble cause, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive serves as a reminder of the power of collective action in combating food insecurity.
