Mayor Stephanie Terry To Read Proclamation For Stamp Out Hunger Day At Press Conference Friday Morning


 The National Association of Letter Carriers and Tri-State Food Bank would like to invite the media and the public to attend the official kick-off of this year’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive at a press conference this Friday, May 10th at 9:00 AM CST in the lobby of the Downtown Evansville Post Office located at 800 Sycamore Street. Mayor Stephanie Terry will read the official Mayoral Proclamation for Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day. Among those in attendance will be representatives of the National Association of Letter Carriers and Tri-State Food Bank.

Now in its 32nd year, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is the largest one-day food drive in the U.S., with more than 10,000 cities and towns across America participating. It provides a unique opportunity for all residents to come together with a common goal of helping our neighbors who are faced with hunger. Residents can simply leave a bag of non-perishable food in a bag next to their mailbox before the delivery of the mail this Saturday, May 11th. Letter carriers will collect these food donations as they deliver mail along their postal routes. All food collected in the Evansville area will be distributed by Tri-State Food Bank to local food pantries, shelters, and other hunger-relief programs.

In its 31-year history, Stamp Out Hunger has collected over 1.9 billion pounds of food nationwide to help feed those in need. In Evansville alone, over two million pounds of food have been collected since the first Stamp Out Hunger in 1983.
