“Stamp Out Hunger” is the largest, single-day food drive in the nation, and a great way to help fill the pantry shelves at The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries.
This year on Saturday, May 9th, letter carriers will collect bags of healthy, non-perishable food that people have set out by their mailboxes. Donations are delivered to the Post Office where they are sorted and then taken to local food distribution agencies including The Shoreline Soup Kitchen’s 5 shoreline pantries.
The “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive is so important to SSKP because in the spring the amount of donated food is much lower. According to a recent study by the United Way called "ALICE" (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed), 25% of Middlesex County residents struggle to afford the basics of housing, food, health care, childcare, and transportation. These struggling families rely on SSKP pantries to help put food on their tables.
Please watch for a notice from your letter carries and help us “Stamp out Hunger” on May 9th!
