Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive 2024

RIFA is excited to partner with the USPS and the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) as they conduct their national food drive, Stamp Out Hunger, on Saturday, May 11, 2024. Since 1993, this food drive has helped feed millions of Americans each year.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Stamp Out Hunger food drive this year,” said Lisa Tillman, Executive Director of RIFA. “In 2023, Jackson residents donated over 6,000 pounds of food, which was distributed throughout our community to support those in need. We are incredibly thankful for the letter carriers and the hard work they do to make this food drive possible. Thanks to the generosity of those who donate and the letter carriers, RIFA is able to provide spiritual and physical nourishment to our patrons.”

The timing is important with food banks, including RIFA, running low on donations from the winter holidays and with summer approaching, when most school meal programs are suspended.

The letter carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive is held annually on the second Saturday in May. In the 30 years since Stamp Out Hunger began, the food drive has collected over 1.9 billion pounds of food for struggling residents.

On May 11, as they deliver mail, Jackson letter carriers will collect your donations left in your mailboxes. Residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, canned meats and fish, pasta, rice, or cereal in their mailbox before the regular mail delivery on Saturday. These food donations help feed local residents. All donations are tax-deductible and will be picked up rain or shine.
