'Stamp Out Hunger' Drive Set For May 12

Queens letter carriers, in conjunction with the United States Postal Service, will join forces with Food Bank for New York City as part of the National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger food drive effort.

On Saturday, May 12 you can help Stamp Out Hunger in Queens by making a delivery of non-perishable food items like canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice at your local post office.

All food donations will be repacked by the Food Bank and redistributed to community and emergency food programs to help families in need.

"Many programs are now beyond capacity and are struggling to keep pace with the ever rising numbers of people turning to their programs," said Lucy Cabrera, President and CEO of Food Bank For New York City. "Every contribution makes a difference. Food collected during Stamp Out Hunger will help offset the rising demand for food."

For more information on Stamp Out Hunger, ask your letter carrier or contact your local post office. For more on the Food Bank for New York City, visit their website at www.foodbanknyc.org .
