EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Saturday’s wet weather forecast has changed the plans for the 25th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
The National Association of Letter Carriers has partnered locally with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s Southern Branch to collect non-perishable food, by collecting donations during mail routes on May 13.
Rather than leave donations by their mailboxes, the Community FoodBank is encouraging people to drop off donations at their post office, due to the chance of heavy rain and winds. The letter carriers will deliver the food donations to the Community FoodBank
Last year, the single-day food drive raised almost 113,000 pounds of food for the Community FoodBank.
Stamp Out Hunger is the largest one day food drive in the country and has collected more than 1.5 million pounds of food over the last 24 years.
