Letter carriers in Lafayette will partner with the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Campbell’s Soup Company on May 11th to combat Hunger in Lafayette Parish. The Stamp Out Hunger Food drive is now in its 21st year.

The annual event  has grown from a regional to a national effort, and provides help to millions of Americans. It’s become the nation’s largest single-day food drive. It benefits Feeding America, the nation’s largest organization for domestic hunger-relief. Last year, 70 million pounds of food were collected nationally. Food donated in Lafayette Parish go to FoodNet. Last year’s donations  in Lafayette Parish totalled 42,000 pounds.

“We’re asking people across the country for their support to make this year the most successful in the drive’s history. It’s so easy to make a donation: simply leave a bag of nonperishable food items by your mailbox to help neighbors in need. That’s all it takes.”
– Fredric V. Rolando, President NALC

Lafayette Parish residents are encouraged to to participate by leaving  a sturdy bag of non-perishable food items next to their mailbox before their time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 11. Letter carriers will collect the donations and take them to FoodNet – The Greater Acadiana Food Bank.
