Stamp Out Hunger

On the second Saturday in May, the National Association of Letter Carriers, the United States Postal Service 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 10,000 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 Roadrunner Food Bank during our business hours.

Volunteers are also needed, and should register online or call 505.349.8841.  All volunteer shifts will occur at 11 Albuquerque post offices.  Any volunteer or group helping that day should proceed to the back of the post office (except the location off Broadway and Lomas).

You can also help another way.  Try our Online Fund and Food Drive and help us raise funds virtually.  Your gift could allow us to distribute up to FIVE meals for every dollar given.

The 2019 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive will be held Sat., May 11th.
