Wondering how to help our community? Participate in our nation’s and our community’s largest food drive …. The 21st Annual National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive to be held on Saturday, May 11, to help our local food banks restock their pantries.

The National Association of Letter Carriers, in conjunction with the US Postal Service, the AFL-CIO, Campbell’s Valpak, and United Way of Okaloosa and Walton Counties, will collect non-perishable and non-expired food items from local residents. Food items needed include quick meals like macaroni, spaghetti, soups, canned meats, peanut butter, canned juice, canned fruits, canned vegetables, baby food, cereal, etc.

To participate, just place your food donation(s) in a bag next to your mailbox early the morning of Saturday, May 11. Your letter carrier will pick up your donations as they make their regular mail routes and then deliver them to our local food banks. It is an easy and convenient way to make a difference right here at home and to help families in need.
