Local post offices hope to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’

COAST CITIES — Join the Del Mar and Solana Beach post offices for the Stamp Out Hunger! event in San Diego County May 9. The annual National Association of Letter Carriers food drive is the nation’s largest single-day food drive.
Residents throughout San Diego County can leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable food such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular delivery May 9. Food items should be in nonbreakable containers such as boxes and cans. Letter carriers will collect the food donation that day and deliver it to San Diego County’s hungry. For residents who would prefer not to leave the food out or who have a post office box, food donations may be taken to your local post office. All food donated at the Del Mar and Solana Beach post offices will benefit Feeding America San Diego.
“In these difficult economic times, hunger is an issue that must be addressed in every community across our country,” said William H. Young, National Association of Letter Carriers president. “We see it daily out on our routes. That’s why now more than ever before we need everybody’s help to make a real difference.”
