It is easy to help make a difference in the community. All you need to do is participate in the nation’s and the community’s largest food drive … the 26th annual National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger food drive and help our local food banks restock their pantries.

On Saturday, May 12, the NALC, in conjunction with the US Postal Service, the AFL-CIO, UFCW, Valpak, and United Way of Okaloosa and Walton Counties, will collect non-perishable and non-expired food items to include quick meals like macaroni, spaghetti, soups, canned meats, peanut butter, canned juice, canned fruits, canned vegetables, baby food, cereal, etc.

To participate, place your food donation(s) in a bag next to your mailbox early the morning of Saturday, May 12. Your letter carrier will pick up your donations as they make their regular mail routes and then deliver them to the local food banks. It is an easy and convenient way to make a difference right here at home and to help families in need!
