Postal Workers Food Drive is Saturday

Just a quick reminder that the National Association of Letter Carriers is holding their annual food drive on Saturday, May 9th. It is so simple to donate a gift of canned food- Simply leave in a bag on your mail box. According to the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), this is the nation’s largest one-day effort to stamp out hunger. Also all food donations remain local so the local food banks should do well this week. The postal union is seeking to exceed last year’s record 73.1 million pounds of food delivered to community food banks and pantries, and this is an easy way for people to donate.

And for you all involved with the Independence Days Challenge, a good opportunity to earn your "Build Community Food Systems" badge. So leave a bag with canned food for your postal worker to pick up!
