Cincinnati Enquirer Oped: Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

It was President Franklin Roosevelt who said, “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have little.”

On Saturday, we get a chance to help those less fortunate with the National Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. It’s the 26th year of the food drive sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers.

It’s simple. Just leave canned goods or non-perishable food by your mailbox on that Saturday morning. Spaghetti noodles, canned soup or canned vegetables, rice, peanut butter and other boxed foods are good for donations. Your letter carrier will pick up the food when dropping off your mail. Your donations will then be distributed to local food banks.
