Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

The Southeast Texas Food Bank participates in annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive
Helping to Stamp Out Hunger in Southeast Texas

BEAUMONT, TX – May 9, 2022For 30 years, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) has conducted an annual nationwide food drive, collecting non-perishable food donations along postal routes. The Southeast Texas Food Bank is excited to continue their participation in this annual event. The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is Saturday, May 14, 2022.

The Food Bank distributes to approximately 130 nonprofit agencies within the eight counties served. Their partner agencies prepare meals and provide approximately 90,000 meals to people in need each month.

“Food donations are critical for helping support our community and those in need of food assistance. “The numbers in Southeast Texas for those that are food insecure remain high,” said a Food Bank representative. “We’ve put forth extra distributions, increased food quantities to our partner agencies, and expanded our Mobile Market capabilities. The food donations received from community participation for this food drive is greatly appreciated.”

To participate in the annual food drive, leave a bag of non-perishable food items outside your home on Saturday, May 14th and your local postal worker will pick up the bag and deliver items to the food bank. If interested in making a monetary donation, please visit: www.setxfoodbank.org/donate.

Did you know that a $10 donation can provide up to 30 meals for desperate people in your community? By making a donation, you are helping to ensure that hungry children in Southeast Texas are adequately nourished, that none of our senior citizens are forced to chose between medicine and food, and that every family facing a crisis can at least have the assurance of food on the table.

Your gift goes a long, long way!
