Stamp Out Hunger 2013 Food Drive Schedule for Saturday
Campbell Soup Company will join forces with the National Association of Letter Carriers to help Stamp Out Hunger this Saturday, May 11th.
The Stamp Out Hunger food drive, held on the second Saturday in May, has become the nation’s largest single-day food drive benefitting Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. In 2012, generous Americans donated 70 million pounds of food, which marked the ninth consecutive year that at least 70 million pounds were collected by letter carriers.
To participate in the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive in El Paso, residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable food items, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, peanut butter, pasta, rice or cereal, next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday. El Paso’s letter carriers will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank.
