Postal Service Stamps Out Hunger

May 13, 2016

One out every seven U.S. citizens qualifies as living in poverty, and many more deal with the burden of hunger every day. The U. S. Postal Service is fighting to change that with its annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive event Saturday, May 14. 

This is the 24th year of the partnership between the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana. Over that time, the group has collected over 1.4 billion pounds of food; however, fighting hunger is an ever-growing battle.
