“Stamp Out Hunger” Saturday May 13

On Saturday, May 13th Letter Carriers across the country will take part in their 25th Annual “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive”.  The drive, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), is America’s largest one-day food collection event that provides millions of pounds of food to local hunger relief agencies.  To help, all you need to do is place non-perishable food items in a bag next to your mailbox before your letter carrier arrives on Saturday, May 13th, and your letter carrier will do the rest. Food collected in Madison, Chatham, Florham Park, Cedar Knolls, Whippany, Morristown, Morris Plains, Mendham, Dover, Rockaway, Mountain Lakes and Parsippany will be donated to the Interfaith Food Pantry.  Some of the items most needed by the Pantry are canned soup, canned fruit, canned tuna, evaporated, dry or shelf stable milk, pasta sauce in cans or plastic jars, canned beans (such as kidney, pinto, etc.), pasta and cereal. 

In 2016, the Interfaith Food Pantry served nearly 10,000 people across Morris County, distributing more than a million pounds of food.  Food Pantry clients include low-income working families and their children, senior citizens living on fixed incomes, people with disabilities and others unemployed or in crisis.  For more information, visit www.mcifp.org or call 973-538-8049.
