Saturday, May 10, the National Association of Letter Carriers will again help Stamp Out Hunger across America. Now in its 20th year, the annual food drive has grown from a regional to a national effort that provides assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.
Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers, with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 20 years.
Kingfield letter carriers are again joining this effort. To participate, residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery Saturday, May lO.Those who do not have a mailbox may drop food off at the Kingfield Post Office.
Non-breakable food containers are the safest. Kingfield will be working with the food pantry at the Economic Ministry in Salem to stock their shelves.
