Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive - Tomorrow, May 8th!

Attention Arizona Couponers! We get so much for free, let's give to those in need!

Here's the info from the Stamp Out Hunger site:

This year Stamp Out Hunger, the nation’s largest single-day food drive, will look to surpass one billion pounds of food collected since its inception in 1993. Last year, letter carriers across the country collected a record total of more than 73.4 million pounds of food.

To help Stamp Out Hunger this year, simply leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, like canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal, next to your mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on May 8. Food items should be in non-breakable containers, such as boxes and cans. The nation’s 230,000 letter carriers will be collecting donations from homes across the country and delivering them to food banks and other hunger relief organizations in more than 10,000 local communities. 

I've got 2 bags full of donation food ready to set out tomorrow morning. How much are you going to donate? Make me proud Arizona couponers!

  1. I was so excited about this. My mail delivery lady already picked mine up. I had 7 bags out and could have done more, but I was afraid about the room in those tiny mail trucks. Anyway, this was much more convenient for me to just put out the food rather than taking it somewhere to donate.
