Stamp Out Hunger

On the second Saturday in May, the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Rural Letter Carriers Association host the largest national food drive in the United States. The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is hosted in communities throughout the US.

In Albuquerque, the food collected through the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive benefits Roadrunner Food Bank.  During the second Saturday in May, we encourage community members to leave out a bag of non-perishable food at their mailboxes as donations to help feed New Mexico’s hungry.  Letter carriers will pick up any food donations left at mailboxes.  The food donations are brought to 11 different post offices from their routes where volunteers and staff begin sorting the food on the dock and load it into trailers destined for the Food Bank.

Food donations are also accepted at the post office the week of the Food Drive, or at the Food Bank any time.

You can also help another way.  Try our Online Food Drive and help us raise funds virtually.  Your gift allows us to distribute more than FIVE meals for every dollar given.

The 2018 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive will be held Sat., May 12th.
