Volunteers from throughout the community will gather Saturday, May 11, at the main Post Office in Charleston to help load and distribute perishable food collected for local food pantries as part of the National Association of Letter Carriers annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. They will be assisted by the West Virginia National Guard.

“Thanks to our outstanding contributors and volunteers, each year we are able to help area pantries feed more than 30,000 West Virginians,” NALC Annual Food Drive Coordinator RD Henson said.

Members of the media are invited to visit the effort, which will take place from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the dock area of the main Post Office at Lee and Dickinson streets, directly across from the Quality Inn and Suites.

Food collected by letter carriers from Kanawha Valley residents on Saturday will be distributed the following week by the United Food Operation (UFO), a non-profit organization housed in Nitro that relies entirely on donations and volunteers, who will divide the food among 12 participating food pantries in Kanawha and Putnam counties.

WHEN:          1 p.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday, May 11, 2024

Founded by members of organized labor and their employers, United Food Operation, Inc. is supported primarily by the voluntary contributions of employees and employers of Charleston, West Virginia area business, industry, and government entities. It is an all-volunteer effort that operates out of donated warehouse and office space.
