Stamp Out Hunger

May 10, 2014

Stamp Out Hunger is the country's largest single-day food drive and it is once again taking place here in Southeast Minnesota. Created by the National Association of Letter Carriers in response to the need they saw every day on their routes, Stamp Out Hunger has collected just under 1.3 billion pounds of food in the last 22 years. 

Known for its distinctive blue plastic bags, Stamp Out Hunger will take place on May 10, 2014. Food from this drive helps fill the shelves of local food shelves. While one bag of food can seem small, Stamp Out Hunger succeeds every year thanks to the hard work of generous neighbors like you.
