Letter carriers and hunger have one thing in common: neither is affected by the season, which is why on Saturday, May 13th, letter carriers will collect food statewide to help the 417,000 Utahns facing hunger.
Utah Food Bank asks residents across the state to help “Stamp Out Hunger” by filling the reminder bag you will receive with non-perishable food donations. Then, simply leave the bag near your mailbox no later than 9:00 a.m. on May 13th and your letter carrier will collect and deliver food donations to Utah Food Bank and its statewide network of 141 partner agencies.
Donated food should be commercially packaged and non-perishable items with an emphasis on items that are low in sodium, sugar, and corn syrup. Most needed food items include beef stew, chili, peanut butter, boxed meals and canned meats.
Look for reminder bags and postcards in your mailbox during the week leading up to the food drive to encourage statewide participation. FIND OUT MORE!
