The United Association of Letter Carriers’ 20th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive is this Saturday. It’s the largest one-day food collection event in the country. You can help by simply placing canned and non-perishable foods at your mailbox for pick-up on Saturday.

Foods collected locally will be used locally thru the Food Bank. They’re especially looking for canned meat, fish, soup, bottled juice, vegetables, pasta, cereal and rice. No glass bottles and please be sure the donated items are not expired.

1 in 6 Americans live at or below the poverty level.

1 in 7 Americans use food stamps.

Nearly 49-million Americans, including 16-million children are facing hunger.

According to NALC president Fredric Rolando, sixteen percent of all Americans face hunger – never sure from day to day where their next meal will come from. It includes 1 in 5 children under the age of 18, plus 4 million seniors who each day who have to choose between paying a utility bill or buying food.

Western New York has been especially generous over the years. Last year local donations topped over a million pounds, the third-most in the country.
