2018 USPS Food Drive

Saturday May 12th was the 26th USPS Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive and one bag at a time, neighbor by neighbor, an incredible 20,039 pounds of food was donated to the food bank! Thank you to all of our volunteers and the volunteer teams from Snohomish Community Church, Windermere Real Estate/Snohomish Inc. and local high schools who came early and stayed late to unload and sort. Also, we cannot forget the committed letters carriers who went above and beyond to collect and deliver your donations. What a generous and caring community we live in. Thank you Snohomish!

USPS Food Drive

Saturday May 12th is the 26th annual Letter Carriers Food Drive. Also known as America’s great day of giving, it is the largest one-day food drive in the country and it is so easy to help.

~Collect a bag of non-perishable food items like canned meats, fish, soup, juice, vegetables, pasta, cereal, peanut butter and rice. This year our greatest needs are baby diapers sizes 4, 5 and 6, adult diapers, Ensure, canned corn, peas and fruit. Think healthy.
~Place the bag by your mailbox on Saturday May 12th and your letter carrier will do the rest.
This day of action is vital to keeping our shelves full as donations tend to slow during the summer months. All donations will directly benefit the Snohomish Community Food Bank and begin feeding families immediately. SCFB and America’s Letter Carriers thank you for helping to Stamp Out Hunger!

If you would like to volunteer on Saturday May 12th, please email our Executive Director Elizabeth Grant: director@snohomishfoodbank.org or call 360-568-7993. A delicious lunch and snacks will be provided and you will be helping alongside the funnest bunch of volunteers in Snohomish. It’s going to be a blast! Thank you Snohomish!!
