Stamp Out Hunger
Stamp Out Hunger is the largest, single-day food drive in the nation, and one of the easiest ways to make a difference in your community. Fill the blue bags and leave them for your letter carrier on the second Saturday in May each year!
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Stamp Out Hunger has been postponed indefinitely. Hunger Task Force will be helping with the newly scheduled date as soon as it is announced.
Typically this extraordinary event calls letter carriers all over the state to perform double-duty by collecting bags of donated food along their mail routes. People all over the state (and country!) will fill plastic bags with donated food and set them by their mailboxes. Local letter carriers pick up the food and deliver it to Hunger Task Force or your local community food pantry.
All food collected through Stamp Out Hunger is provided absolutely free of charge to families in need. Don’t just reach into the dusty realms of your cupboard…plan ahead and have some healthy food donations ready for your Stamp Out Hunger bag, like canned low-sodium vegetables, lean protein like tuna or chicken, and brown rice or whole wheat pasta.
Forget to put out your food? You can also donate at Hunger Task Force directly, located at 201 S. Hawley Court.
