Delivering Meals Across the Nation: Stamp Out Hunger 2024

May 24, 2024

For the ninth year, Move For Hunger joined the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) for the annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. 

During the nation’s largest one-day food drive, residents place non-perishable food items in a bag near their mailbox for carriers to collect on their postal routes. Without assistance from school lunch programs, over 20 million kids face hunger during the summer months. Donations are essential for local food banks and pantries to help food insecure families. 

This year, over 20 of our transportation partners helped provide more than 226,000 meals to communities all over the U.S. Together we were able to transport over 271,000 lbs of food to banks and pantries across the country. We’re so grateful to have a network of partners who are committed to fighting hunger

Highlights from Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive 2024:

Our generous partner Allied transported the most pounds of food donations this year with Reebie Storage & Moving Co. of Franklin Park! They wrapped up Stamp Out Hunger 2024 by transporting 60,000 lbs of food to Loaves & Fishes Food Bank. This donation alone brought over 50,000 meals to the community of Naperville, IL.
