Neighbor to Neighbor has teamed up with Kings Food Market to make this year’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive the largest yet.

Stamp Out Hunger is a nation-wide food collection initiative of the National Association of Letter Carriers. Last year’s food drive generated over 50,000 pounds of food for Neighbor to Neighbor, Greenwich’s food pantry. This year’s ambitious goal is to double that amount.

Thanks to a generous donation from Kings Food Market in Old Greenwich, one week prior to the food drive, residents will be mailed pre-printed plastic bags to fill. Residents are asked to place the bags of nonperishable, unexpired food donations by their mailboxes on Saturday, May 10 for pick up by their mail carriers. Food drive organizers hope these brightly colored bags pre-printed with instructions will encourage participation in this vital town-wide food drive.

All donations from this drive will be delivered to Neighbor to Neighbor and distributed free of charge to low-income Greenwich residents. Most needed food items include canned fruit, tuna, black or red kidney beans and soup.

Neighbor to Neighbor is a nonprofit organization providing healthy and nutritious food to over 1,000 residents each month and in-season clothing, linens, household items and diapers to 2,600 local residents annually. Donations of food and clothing are always gratefully accepted in addition to financial donations.

To donate, run a food or clothing drive, or volunteer, visit N-to-n.org.
