On Saturday May 13th, the National Association of Letter Carriers hosts the 25th Annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. This is the nation’s largest one day food drive and the public is encouraged to participate by placing non-perishable food items in or near their mailboxes.
All food donations in our area will be delivered to the Lowcountry Food Bank (LCFB) where they will then be distributed to a network of soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and other partners in our community.
This food drive is especially important to the LCFB as it prepares for the increased need for food assistance that comes in the summer months. While on summer break, many children do not have access to school feeding programs they need.
LCFB’s most needed items include canned proteins such as tuna and chicken, peanut butter, canned fruits, vegetables, and grains (in the form of pastas and cereals).
