Prepare for the food drive that approaches donation in the most practical way possible.

The annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is returning this Saturday, May 11th. The massive organized collection of non-perishable food and goods left in mailboxes around the country is run by the National Association of Letter Carriers, aka your mailmen and women, who were recognized by Governor Mills for their efforts.

Rather than requiring you to bag up your goods and drive to a donation point, the Stamp Out Hunger drive prompts you to leave your goods somewhere you pass every single day: your mailbox! Whether it's an unopened package of baby wipes or a grocery bag filled with canned goods (depending on the size of your mailbox), leave your donation inside or hanging outside your mailbox this Saturday, May 11th.

The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive of Southern Maine has a facebook page where you can find more info, along with a list of ideas of goods to donate. Don't forget: this Saturday, non-perishable donations, mailbox. That's all you really need to know!
