National Association of Letter Carriers: Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

May 14 at

Partner with Food Share and your local mail carrier to help fight hunger in Ventura County.

After a two-year hiatus, the National Letter Carrier Food Drive is back! This event is a major source of food for our hungry friends and neighbors who are being pushed to the limit by rising food, gas and home rental costs.

Do you live in one of these zip codes? Here’s how you can help!
On Saturday, May 14, if you live in any of the following zip codes, please leave a sturdy bag of non-perishable, shelf-stable pantry items on your doorstep by 8 am and your mail carrier will collect and transport the food to our warehouse in Oxnard. 

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


What kind of food should I put out for my mail carrier to collect?
 

The items most requested by the people we serve are rice, pasta, beans, canned proteins like chicken and tuna, peanut butter and cereal. 

IMPORTANT! Please, NO pre-prepared or fresh foods like bread or cooked chicken or any foods that need refrigeration, and no items in glass! We cannot collect and distribute fresh food fast enough before it turns bad, and glass items can get broken in transit.

Thank you so much for helping us serve our community in need. This event is a hugely important source of food and every can you donate makes a difference. 

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!
