Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz hosted the kickoff of Brooklyn’s “Stamp Out Hunger!” campaign at Borough Hall, 209 Joralemon Street.
Letter carriers of Brooklyn, in conjunction with the United States Postal Service, have joined forces with Food Bank for New York City as part of the National Association of Letter Carriers’ (NALC) “Stamp Out Hunger!” effort.
The food drive will culminate May 9, which will mark the nation’s largest single−day food drive.
During the week of May 4−May 9, everyone can help “Stamp Out Hunger!” in Brooklyn by making a delivery of non−perishable food items, such as canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice, at their local post office.
All food donations will be repacked by the Food Bank and redistributed to community and emergency food programs to help families in need.
