Last Updated: May 8, 2024By Tags:

Mobile, AL– For more than 30 years, Feeding the Gulf Coast has been honored by the generous donations of food from our community during the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Annual Stamp Out HungerFood Drive – the largest, single-day effort to put food on the table for thousands of individuals across our service area. This year’s event will take place, Saturday, May 11, with a goal of collecting more than 100,000 pounds of food.

“We are grateful to the NALC and our community for their support through this annual food drive. As our largest single food drive of the year, Stamp Out Hunger is deeply impactful for our one in six neighbors, including one in five children along the central Gulf Coast who face the challenge of hunger,” says Michael Ledger, President & CEO of Feeding the Gulf Coast. “Partnerships and community support like this food drive made it possible for Feeding the Gulf Coast to distribute more than 30 million meals in 2023. As we continue to see an increase in hardworking families and individuals, children, and seniors facing hunger, we are hopeful there will be strong community support this year.”

You can help make a difference in the lives of those in need by donating nonperishable food items to the Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Letter carriers will deliver donation bags leading up to May 11. Residents who do not receive a bag can still participate by using any grocery bag on hand to fill with donation items. To participate, place non-perishable food item donations in a bag outside your mailbox on the morning of May 11. Your letter carrier will collect your items on their route. Feeding the Gulf Coast’s most needed items include canned meats (tuna, chicken, etc.), canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned and boxed meals (soup, mac and cheese, etc.), canned or dried beans/peas, peanut butter, and jelly (plastic containers), pasta and rice, and cereal and breakfast items. Individuals should not donate items in glass containers or items that have been opened or homemade.
