Hunger impacts 16.7 million children in the US. Momtrends is celebrating food month this May and wants to take an opportunity to share our blessings. This weekend the nation will participate in the largest single-day food drive of the year. Stamp Out Hunger takes place Saturday, May 8th and getting involved is as easy as going to the mailbox!
The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC aka your friendly mailman or mailwoman) will be collecting food from families across the country. Did you know: One in six Americans struggles with hunger. To help, simply leave a can or two of food in your mailbox on Saturday. The NALC will deliver the cans to food banks across the country.
If you live in urban areas (hello New Yorkers!) you may have a collection box in your lobby. Our building set ours out today. Momtrends encourages all of us to give generously and Stamp Out Hunger.
The drive this year hopes to exceed last year's 73.4 million pounds total. For more details visit Feeding America.org.
