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.

To kick-off this year's annual Empty Bowls event, there will be three days of bowl making. Artists, students and folks around the community will be hand making bowls to support the fundraiser in March. Each bowl is a unique reminder about the fight against hunger in Alabama.All proceeds go the Montgomery Area Food Bank.
305 S. Perry Street, Montgomery, AL- doors open at 11 am.
Empty Bowls was born in 1990 by John Hartom and his high school students in Bloomfield Hills, MI, as a way to support a food drive. They decided on making clay bowls for a fund-raiser, serving soup and bread in the handmade bowls. Each guest kept their personally picked bowl as a reminder of community hunger.
Our bowls come from a variety of people—professional potters, students, and those who have never even created something from clay. The results are phenomenal.
