26th Annual Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive



26th Annual Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Minnetonka, Minnesota (April 24, 2018— Each May, the National Association of Letter Carriers holds a food drive to collect food for local food shelves. ICA is proud to partner with our local letter carriers for this great event!

On Saturday, May 12, neighbors will leave bags of food at their mailboxes, and letter carriers will pick them up and drop them in a collection area. Volunteers work to collect food from throughout our community and bring it back to ICA. All of the food collected will stay in our communities and help replenish our shelves for the summer months ahead. We need lots of help to make this day a success!

Here is how you can get involved: 

  • Donate food. Be sure to leave a bag of nonperishable food by your mailbox on Saturday, May 12. Please note, in past years, mail carriers have left postcards and grocery bags in mailboxes prior to the event. They will not be doing so this year, so please mark your calendars!

  • Volunteer. Volunteers are needed at various satellite stations throughout Minnetonka to collect groceries as the local postal carriers drop them off. Great for groups, individuals, and families!
