Looking to donate nonperishable food items to help those who face hunger in our community, but aren’t sure where to drop them off? Well, you are in luck!

On Saturday, May 10th, for the 22nd consecutive year,  the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) in partnership with the U.S. Postal Service will be collecting food donations from homes throughout San Diego County. “Stamp Out Hunger” is the largest one-day food drive and all you have to do to help is place nonperishable food items (canned meats, canned vegetables, peanut butter, etc.) next to your mailbox. Letter carriers will pick up those donations and then deliver them to the Food Bank and other local hunger-relief organizations.

Most Needed Food Items
- Canned Chicken & Tuna
- Dry & Canned Beans
- Canned Vegetables
- Canned or Dried Fruit
- Peanut Butter
- Cereal
- Rice
- Nuts & Seeds

This food drive will help keep the Food Bank’s shelves full just in time for the summer months, when low-income school children throughout the county stop receiving free school meals and their parents are forced to turn to the Food Bank for assistance.

Last year, San Diego County residents generously donated 218,847 pounds of food to the Food Bank and we hope to receive even more donations this year.

Thank you in advance for supporting the Food Bank’s hunger-relief efforts in San Diego!
