MORRIS COUNTY — Letter carriers nationwide will participate in their Annual “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive” on Saturday, May 13.
The Letter Carriers’ Food Drive is an annual event where letter carriers across the United States collect non-perishable food donations from homes on their routes. The donations are then delivered to local food banks and pantries to help those in need.
The Letter Carriers’ Food Drive will benefit the Interfaith Pantry this year. This local organization provides food and other essential items to individuals and families in need in the community. The Interfaith Pantry is committed to ensuring that no one in the community goes hungry. The food donations collected through the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive will help them continue serving those in need.
Residents in the community are encouraged to participate in the food drive by leaving non-perishable food items in the special bags provided by their letter carriers. Some suggested items to donate include canned goods, pasta, rice, cereal, peanut butter, and other non-perishable items with long shelf life.
The Letter Carriers’ Food Drive is a great opportunity for the community to unite to support those in need and help fight hunger. By working together, we can positively impact the lives of those struggling to put food on the table.
The Interfaith Food Pantry Network has supplied emergency and supplemental food since 1994 to Morris County residents in need. Clients are low-income working families, the unemployed, people with disabilities, and seniors living on fixed incomes.
In 2022, the Interfaith Food Pantry Network distributed more than 1.7 million pounds of food during 31,100 visits from its two pantry sites through home delivery, free farmers markets, and Healthy Choices Mobile Pantry Network.
