Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
The Annual National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive takes place each May. The annual food drive is the largest one-day food drive in America and possibly the world!
It's easy to participate in the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive ... place a box or bag of canned or non-perishable food items next to your mailbox before the letter carrier delivers the mail and the carrier will do the rest. The food is taken back to a postal station, sorted, and then delivered to the Emergency Food Bank and Family Services.
Please help us Stamp Out Hunger in San Joaquin County. With your help, we can fight hunger together! #StampOutHunger

Host an Event
You can host your own event and donate the proceeds to help end hunger within our community. Supporting the Emergency Food Bank Stockton/San Joaquin by hosting an event is a great way to fight hunger. There are many ways to help us reach our mission and here are just a few examples of how community residents and companies have made a difference:
Katheryn Faull organized a Birthday for a Cause and raised over $1,000 for the EFB.
St. Bernadette’s Ladies Guild held a fundraiser and raised $1,000.
