 – Eighteen year “Stamp Out Hunger” partnership has provided more than one billion pounds of food for people in need across the country –

United Way of Door County encourages community members to donate a bag of non-perishable items (canned foods, pasta, rice, cereal, etc) to be collected by letter carriers as they deliver mail along their postal routes on May 12th.

“Stamp Out Hunger” is a national partnership between NALC, the U.S. Postal Service, United Way, the AFL-CIO, the National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association, Campbell, Feeding America, Valpak, AARP and Uncle Bob’s Self Storage. The nation’s 230,000 active letter carriers will take the donations to local food banks, pantries and shelters.  The food that you donated will go to the pantry in your community.  If there isn’t a pantry in your community, the food will go to the next closest community pantry.

Please put your bag of non perishable food out on Saturday, May 12, 2012, prior to mail delivery.  

Each year, millions of Americans join the effort to help meet the needs of nearly 50 million Americans who live in families that lack sufficient food. One in seven adults and nearly one-quarter of all children who are hungry and not receiving the basic nutrition they need. Moving into the summer months, 22 million students are at risk of going hungry when the school year ends. For many children, school meals are the only complete and nutritious meals they eat. This is true even in Door County.  Our pantries are serving more families than ever, over 400 households per month.  Our after school programs are reported hungry children, even after eating lunch at school.

For more information please contact the United Way of Door County at (920) 746-9645 or www.unitedwaydc.com.
