Stamp Out Hunger food drive

Posted May 7, 2010 11:54 a.m. EDT

Now is a great time to donate some of your non-perishable deals to those in need. Saturday, May 8 is the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive from the postal carriers. It's the largest one day food drive in the nation.

All you need to do is put the items in a bag and leave them at your mailbox. Your postal carrier will pick them up and deliver to the local food bank! 

Example of requested non-perishables include:

  • Canned soup
  • Canned meats and fish
  • Canned vegetables, fruits and juices
  • Boxed goods (such as cereal)
  • Pasta and rice

Campbell's Soup is also supporting the cause by donating one can of soup to Feeding America (up to 1 million cans) for each Facebook fan that joins the fight against hunger at the link in the box to the left.
