Live Generously: Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

For 1 in 6 Americans hunger is a reality. Join us on Saturday May 12 in the largest, single-day food drive.


Here’s how you can help!


Simply leave a bag of non-perishable food items by your mailbox, and your letter carrier will pick it up and donate it to your local food bank. It’s that easy!

The local sponsor, Dollar General, will also be stamping out hunger by hosting a food drive in all of their stores throughout our 46-county service area throughout the month of May!

Most needed food items are: peanut butter, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta and cereal.

Route Drivers

Starting at 10 am
Volunteers to help pick up donated food on several of the postal routes. Drivers should have a truck, van, SUV, or trailer with sides, and have 1-2 helpers. The donations will be taken to the Graceworks facility.
