It is easy to help make a difference in our community. All you need to do is participate in the nation's and community’s largest food drive — the 27th Annual National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive to be held May 11. 

To participate, just place food donation(s) in a bag next to your mailbox early the morning of May 11. Letter carriers will pick up donations as they make their regular mail routes and then deliver them to local food banks. It is an easy and convenient way to make a difference right here at home and to help families in need.

The NALC, in conjunction with the US Postal Service, the AFL-CIO, UFCW, Valpak, and United Way of Okaloosa & Walton Counties, are asking for non-perishable and non-expired food items including quick meals like macaroni, spaghetti, soups, canned meats, peanut butter, canned juice, canned fruits, canned vegetables, baby food, cereal, etc.
