World's largest food drive

According to a USPS annuouncement, national and local media across the country report the 14th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive — sponsored by National Association of Letter Carriers, USPS and Campbell’s Soup — will take place this Saturday, May 13.

Letter carriers and other postal employees in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America will collect non-perishable food items donated by customers and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters.

According to various sources, this is reputed to be the largest annual one-day food drive in the world.

“The Postal Service is proud to support our nation’s letter carriers and the generosity of customers to enable the collection of millions of pounds of food to replenish community food banks and feed the needy,” said Postmaster General Jack Potter.
