It’s the nation’s largest one-day food drive and we need your help to make it successful. You don’t even have to leave home to help out.
Just follow these two simple steps:
- Collect and bag nonperishable food items.
- Place the bag by the mailbox for your letter carrier prior to their normal delivery time.
That’s it! Your letter carrier will pick-up the donations and deliver them to a local food bank.
In 2015, the food drive collected more than 70 million pounds of non-perishable food. This year, we hope to do even better. All food that is collected will stay and help local communities.
Have any questions? Check out the National Association of Letter Carriers’ FAQ page for more information.
The food drive is sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW), United Way, U.S. Postal Service, and the AFL-CIO.
