‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive to benefit FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank

On May 10, Central Virginians will have an opportunity to fight hunger in their community by taking part in the 22nd edition of the National Association of Letter Carriers, NALC, ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive.

In early May, more than 250,000 food drive donation bags will be delivered by letter carriers to homes throughout the Richmond metro area. The public is then asked to fill the bags with non-perishable food items and place them near their mailboxes on the morning of Saturday, May 10. On this date, their letter carrier will pick up their donation and deliver it to FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank, where the items will be sorted and then redistributed through FeedMore’s partner agency network. Donations made through ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ in Colonial Heights will be delivered directly to the Colonial Heights Food Pantry, a FeedMore partner agency.

Last year, 161,217 meal equivalents were donated to FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank through ‘Stamp Out Hunger.’

“We would love to surpass 175,000 meals donated,” said FeedMore spokesman Jeff Baldwin. “As we enter the summer months, the demand for food historically increases and we typically see food donations drop so a successful campaign will allow us to continue to meet the needs of so many neighbors.”

Those wishing to donate non-perishable items to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ are asked to donate items such as canned fruits, canned meats, canned tuna, canned vegetables, cereals, pasta and rice, peanut butter, and spaghetti sauce.

FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank distributes nearly 84,000 pounds of food each day to its service area partners.

If you do not receive a ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ donation bag in your mailbox, you can still participate by making a financial contribution online at http://www.feedmore.org or use any paper or plastic grocery bag and place the items you wish to donate at your mailbox.
