Stamp Out Hunger

Join the National Association of Letter Carriers and in the largest one-day food drive in the nation. The Saturday before Mother's Day, letter carriers will collect bags of healthy, non-perishable food while on their routes across the U.S. 

Fighting hunger is as easy as heading to your mailbox. Look for the brown paper H-E-B bag in your mailbox, fill it with healthy, non-perishable food and set it by your mailbox on Saturday, May 10, to be picked up and delivered to your Food Bank. Or you can show your support with an online donation.

What should I donate?

  • Healthy, non-perishable food
  • Items with intact, un-opened, consumer or commercial packaging
  • Items with non-breakable packaging (no glass, please)
  • Food within the expiration date on the packaging

What are the most-requested items?

  • Canned meats like tuna, stew and chili (pop-tops preferred)
  • Canned vegetables
  • Pasta and pasta sauce
  • Beans
  • Healthy cereals
  • Peanut butter
