Stamp Out Hunger 2009

For the 17th year, the National Association of Letter Carriers will be collecting non-perishable food items like canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice in their yearly drive to “stamp out hunger.”  This year the date is Saturday, May 9th.  (photo credit)

You and I can help by placing food donations at the mailbox on May 9th before the letter carrier arrives. The food donations will then be taken to the Post Office. Later it will be delivered to local food banks or pantries. Please make sure the food items do not have expired use dates. They also ask that there be no glass containers.

What an excellent idea. I wonder if it would catch on here? Of course, the Royal Mail would have to learn how to collect mail door-to-door as well as just deliver it first!!!
