STAMP OUT HUNGER Food Drive
Date: May 9, 2015
Location: Your mailbox
The NALC National Food Drive is the outgrowth of a tradition of community service exhibited repeatedly by members of the letter carriers union over the years.For many years, a number of branches had collected food for the needy as part of their community service effort. A revamped drive was organized for May 15, 1993—the second Saturday in May—with a goal of having at least one NALC branch in each of the 50 states participating. The result was astounding. More than 11 million pounds of food was collected—a one-day record in the United States—involving more than 220 union branches.In 2010, the food drive surpassed the 1 billion pound park in total food collected over its history.
