This year marks the 21st anniversary of the nation’s largest one-day food drive to benefit those in need – The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive conducted by the National Association of Letter Carriers. 

Last year, this event resulted in 70 million pounds of non-perishable food collected, for a grand total of 1.2 billion pounds over two decades of collections!

This Saturday, May 11th, please consider supporting the Council of Social Concern's food pantry, which serves residents of Woburn and Winchester, by leaving non-perishable food items out for our Letter Carriers to pick up.

Please remember to put out your non-perishable food donation (within date and preferably not in glass jars) on Saturday, May 11, before your mail is delivered.

If you would like to make a monetary donation, please make your check payable to “Council of Social Concern Food Pantry” and leave it clearly marked for your Letter Carrier.
