Saturday, May 11, 20013 Wyoming Letter Carriers will join Letter Carriers across the nation to collect food to feed our nations hungry. “STAMP OUT HUNGER” is the largest one day food drive nationwide.

This food drive comes at a time when food banks are running out of holiday donations and the demand for food is increasing as kids are getting out of school for the summer. One in five children in the United States faces the prospect of going to bed hungry.

Letter Carriers across Wyoming will deliver grocery bags from United Way along with the Post Cards from Campbell’s Soup the days before the drive. Just fill the bag with non-perishable food items like canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal, rice, peanut butter, tuna fish, sugar, etc. and place by your mailbox on May 11, to help families in need in our community. Your Letter Carrier will pick up the food and it will be weighed, sorted and distributed by Food Bank of the Rockies.

Participation is as easy as 1, 2, and 3:
1. Put some non-perishable food items in a bag and place it by your mailbox or take food to any Post Office.
2. Your letter carrier will pick it up and deliver it to a local food bank!
3. The food benefits the hungry across Wyoming.
