22nd annual Stamp Out Hunger! food drive for Second Harvest is May 10

Second Harvest Food Bank and local letter carriers will celebrate the 22nd annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive on May 10 by collecting nonperishable food items throughout the New Orleans area. 
Residents of Orleans and Jefferson parishes are asked to leave nonperishable food items such as peanut butter, soups and stews, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats, tuna fish, chili, cereals, beans, rice or pasta next to their mailboxes prior to regular mail delivery May 10. Letter carriers will pick up the donations and deliver them to Second Harvest Food Bank for distribution to families in need.

Other options to donate include: dropping off bagged food items at local post offices through May 16; making a monetary donation to Second Harvest Food Bank at www.no-hunger.org; or purchasing a $5 prepared grocery bag from the Stamp Out Hunger display at Rouses Supermarket or donating items in the red Second Harvest Food Bank barrel in the front of Rouses stores.

Stamp Out Hunger! food drive is the largest food drive of the year for Second Harvest Food Bank. The timing of the drive helps replenish food pantries just as they are seeing an increase in the need for food assistance since thousands of children will be out of school during the summer months and left undernourished. In 2013, letter carriers collected more than 232,000 pounds of food in the Greater New Orleans area. That equals 193,600 meals locally.
