Every spring, the National Association of Letter Carriers holds the nation's largest food drive — at post offices throughout the country. For a week in May, everyone can help “Stamp Out Hunger!” in Brooklyn by making a delivery of non-perishable food items, such as canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice, at their local post office. All food donations are then repacked by the Food Bank and redistributed to community and emergency food programs to help families in need.

For 1.9 million people in New York City, food stamps are a lifeline. And, if you are on food stamps, on average you have to get by on $1.50 per meal. Most of us spend more than that on our morning coffee.
Yet, as Congress rewrites the Farm Bill, food stamps are on the chopping block. Help raise awareness by living on a food stamp budget for one week — and sharing your experience online!
