25th Annual Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Collects Over 150,000 Pounds of Food

The 25th annual letter carriers’ food drive, Stamp Out Hunger, collected 153,249 pounds of food. The National Association of Letter Carriers’ (NALC), helped give back to communities by encouraging households to fill up a brown paper bag with non-perishable food items.

During the first week of May, households across El Paso received a postcard announcing the food drive. Letter carriers then delivered brown paper bags during the week of May 8 in preparation of pickup on Saturday, May 13.

All food donations went to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank, the distribution center for more than 120 local food pantries, to help feed the hungry in the borderland. Non-perishable food items include: canned fruits, canned vegetables, peanut butter, 100% fruit juices, soups, cereals, canned meats, pasta, pasta sauce, canned tuna and oatmeal.

Letter carriers, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger employees, and 100 volunteers sorted, inspected and weighed the food donations.

Stamp Out Hunger food drive partners are: the U.S. Postal Service, National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, United Way Worldwide, AFL-CIO, AARP Foundation, Valpak and Valassis.
