Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania is partnering with the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) for the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. On May 14th, participating postal carriers around the Lehigh Valley will be collecting food donations as they deliver mail in their communities.
Community members in Bethlehem, Allentown and Easton that would like to participate in this food drive can leave a bag of non-perishable food items next to their mailboxes before mail delivery on May 14th. From there, NALC works with Second Harvest Food Bank to distribute all collected food items to network of nonprofit community partners across the Lehigh Valley, including food pantries, meal centers, shelters, schools, and senior living centers.
This effort is part of a nationwide food drive coordinated by the NALC in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Suggested donations include whole wheat pasta, low-sodium or water-packed canned vegetables, canned fruit in juice, shelf-stable unflavored milk, low-sodium or water-packed canned meats and seafood, and personal care items such as diapers, toothbrushes, menstrual products, and toilet paper.
