This is the 26th Anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, the largest one-day food drive in America. Please help by bagging non-perishable items and setting them near, or hung from, your mailbox for collection when mail is delivered on May 12. "Since we are blessed to live in a lovely and prosperous shoreline community, it's hard to imagine that many of our neighbors are struggling to afford the most basic staple, food", says Wendy Cowles Branford Food Pantry President.

Communities throughout the nation will partner with the USPS to donate and collect non-perishable food products for delivery to local food pantries. Perhaps most alarming is the fact that almost 16 million children in America are struggling with hunger. "They truly care and understand that many hardworking people still struggle with the high cost of living here in Morris County and may be one illness or vehicle breakdown away from needing food assistance".

Congress is a gold medalist in corruption: PM Modi
The youth with entrepreneurial tendency made Bengaluru a startup, but Congress turned it into "pothole club", Modi said. You brought Gabbar Singh Tax (an allusion to GST) but this time you have gone even further.


The timing is important, with food banks, pantries and shelters running low on donations from the winter holidays and with summer approaching, when most school meal programs are suspended. That brought the total since NALC's food drive began in 1993 to more than 1.5 billion pounds. It's easy to make a donation: "simply leave a bag of nonperishable food items by the mailbox to help your neighbors in need".

Locally, Reasors, Warehouse Market, Wal-Mart and area banks have contributed their resources in the past to assist the letter carriers on this annual drive. Cash donations are always welcomed, and all of the donations collected remain local.
