Stamp Out HungeR 2023
Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Drive was a Success!
Each May the National Association of Letter Carriers has been proud to hold the Stamp Out Hunger donation drive, the nation’s largest one day donation drive. After a two year hiatus due to COVID, Letter Carriers collected food left near the mailboxes of everyone in the city. We are so grateful for the event this year because we were low on food donations.
Walk for Hunger- May 2023
Help the Norwood Food Pantry Walk Team
Feed Kids and Families
The pandemic caused food insecurity to skyrocket. But even as we begin to look toward recovery, too many families are still living with the daily worry of being able to feed themselves and their children. Rising food prices are challenging many households- we need your help!
Always the first Sunday in May, Massachusetts residents come together to raise the issue of hunger and much needed funds to support solutions to hunger in Massachusetts.No one should go without a meal, yet Project Bread estimates that 1 in 5 households with children across the Commonwealth are facing hunger right now. With so many struggling during this challenging time, no one should worry about where their next meal will come from or if they'll able to feed their children.
Will you join Captain Nick C and the Food Pantry Walk Team in an effort to help the unprecedented number of people who can't afford enough to eat due to inflation and rising food costs? Nick has created this fundraiser to provide much needed support to our neighbors facing food insecurity and hunger right now, and we are asking you to join in this cause.
Donate Now and let's ensure kids and families have food on the table during this crisis and beyond!
