Start collecting your nonperishable food items for the 27th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive presented by Home Bank on Saturday, May 11, 2019, hosted by the United States Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers. Last year, this nationwide one-day food drive collected over 71.6 million pounds of food, and in our service area more than 60,000 pounds were collected. All food collected in the Baton Rouge area will be transported to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, to serve more than 115 member agencies in 11 parishes.
To participate in this year’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, residents can leave a nonperishable food donation by their mailbox on May 11. Local letter carriers will collect the food as they proceed along their mail route.
