This drive is one of the most successful food drives in our nation.

Nationally, nearly 71 MILLION pounds of food was collected. Since 1993, the total national collection stands at 1.4 BILLION pounds. This drive restocks the food banks for the summer months, after they are nearly depleted from the winter holiday season. All you have to do is place non-perishable food items in YOUR mailbox on Saturday May 14th for pantry volunteers or mail-carriers to collect. You may also take your donations to the post office. If you would like more information, please visit the NALC’s website at www.NALC.org.
