Unfortunately, despite the generosity of millions of Americans who have supported the food drive in previous years, the need for food assistance has never been greater. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's annual study measuring food security in the United States, nearly 50 million Americans are living in food insecure homes.
Here's how you can help the NALC fight hunger in America:
1. Collect and bag non-perishable food items, such as canned meats, fish, vegetables, soup, pasta, cereal, and rice.
2. Place the bags by your mail box. Local letter carriers will pick up the donated items and bring them to the local food bank – that’s the beauty of the drive, all donations stay in the local area to help residents in need.
