National Association of Letter Carriers "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive

 

 

Thank you Denton County for donating 12,258 pounds of non-perishable food on May 12, 2018

Each year, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) partners with United Way of Denton County and Denton Community Food Center (DCFC) to "Stamp Out Hunger" in Denton. This one-day food drive brings together local volunteers, postal carriers and a caring community to donate much-needed food for local families in need.

According to Feeding America's most recent "Map the Meal Gap" data, there are 113,260 people in Denton County considered by the USDA to be "food-insecure," unsure of where they will find their next meal. Hunger and malnourishment hinder a child's performance at school, a parent's ability to work, as well as the overall health of families across Denton County. This is our chance to improve lives by making sure parents and their children don't go hungry.

Here's how you can make a difference:

  • Fill a sturdy paper or plastic bag with non-perishable food
  • On Saturday, May 11th 2019, set the bag out by your mailbox

It's that simple! Our neighborhood postal carriers will bring your bags, plus the bags from your neighbors, to local food pantries like the Denton Community Food Center, where volunteers will sort donated food to feed local families in need.
