One of the most important days of the year, on the second Saturday in May many people will be observing Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day. The nation’s largest one-day food drive, it is acknowledged in over 10,000 cities and towns nationwide and is where food is picked up by the mailmen and women around the nation.
What Is Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day?
From humble beginnings, great things can grow which is why it starts in October 1991. It was just a pilot program back then, but the success and goodwill of the people meant the ten cities grew to more and more. It was then moved to spring.
We all want a future where no one goes hungry, but some people are actively trying to make this happen, and help in the short term. In fact, anyone can get involved which is why we are all encouraged to fill the bags of mail mean and mail women on the second Saturday in May.
A billion pounds of food has been delivered in the last two decades alone, showing that anything is possible. The incentive is sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers who do their bit to help.
The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive incentive itself has been the recipient of numerous awards, and rightly so.
How To Observe Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day
One of the best ways to observe this day is by getting involved and donate to the cause. If you have the time and drive, why not volunteer at the local post office during this time as it will be busy. This is when donations need to be sorted. By donating nonperishable food items, you can help feed someone who will otherwise struggle for food.
