Short Hills Postal Carriers ‘Stamp Out Hunger' in the Country’s Largest Food Drive


SHORT HILLS, NJ – In it’s 25th year, the National Association of Letter Carriers will conduct it’s annual, national food drive to fight hunger. In addition to Short Hills, over 10,000 cities and towns across America will be participating in the single day pick-up supported by over 175,000 letter carriers nationwide.

Short Hills residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy plastic or paper bag near their mailboxes containing non-perishable food items such as canned soups, rice, cereal, and pasta. Letter carriers will pick up the bags on Saturday, May 13 during their routes.

“Letter carriers will be putting a card in residents’ mailboxes explaining the program,” said Millburn Township resident Cynthia Wyatt. “Volunteers will be picking up [the donated food] from the Short Hills Post Office."

Wyatt also posted the food drive on the popular Newcomers and Neighbors of Short Hills and Millburn listserv to spread the word and garner support for the food drive.

Food collected by the letter carriers will be donated to the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges (IFPO). The organization is an all-volunteer, collaborative effort of four religious congregations in Short Hills and South Orange; Christ Church in Short Hills, Congregation Beth El, Congregation B’nai Jeshurun and Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel.

Since the first national Food Drive in 1993, the Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has collected more than 1.5 billion pounds of food. Last year’s drive brought in a record 80 million pounds of food.

Residents who have questions about the drive should ask their letter carrier, contact the Short Hills Post Office, or go to or
