National Association of Letter Carriers: Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

May 13 at

(OXNARD, CA) With 1 in 4 people in Ventura County experiencing food insecurity, the 2023 National Letter Carrier Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive, the country’s largest one-day food drive, is more important than ever. Taking place on Saturday, May 13, the event provides Ventura County residents with an easy way to donate food to food insecure friends neighbors who are being pushed to the limit by rising food, gas, and home rental costs. 

On Saturday, May 13, if you live in any of the following zip codes, please fill either the branded bag provided by your mail carrier, or a sturdy bag of your own, with non-perishable, shelf-stable pantry items and leave it by your mailbox no later than 8 am.

Westlake Village 91361
Thousand Oaks 91360/ 91362
Newbury Park 91320
Camarillo 93010/ 93012
Oxnard 93030/ 93033/ 93035/ 93036
Port of Hueneme 93041
Ventura 93001 / 93003 / 93004

The most requested items are rice, pasta, beans, canned proteins like chicken and tuna, peanut butter, and cereal. 

PLEASE NO pre-prepared or fresh foods like bread or cooked chicken or any foods that need refrigeration, and no items in glass! Fresh food cannot be collected and distributed quickly enough before it turns bad, and glass items can get broken in transit to Food Share’s warehouses. 

A great volunteer opportunity!

Stamp out Hunger is the nation’s largest one day food drive and one of the most fun events of the year!

We are looking for volunteers to assist at five post office locations.
Volunteers will assist with:

  • Building of cardboard bins
  • Directing mail carriers to positions where volunteers unload
  • Off-loading of food from mail carrier trucks
  • Placing food into sorting bins

And making lots of celebratory noise as carriers arrive!
