Join Us for Stamp Out Hunger May 11!

We’re thrilled to announce Stamp Out Hunger is happening Saturday, May 11! Stamp Out Hunger, the nation’s largest single-day food drive known for its distinctive blue plastic bags, was created by the National Association of Letter Carriers in response to the need for food they saw in the community every day on their routes. Here’s how it works:

  • A blue Stamp Out Hunger bag will be sent to your home in early May.
  • Fill the bag with non perishable food items and leave it by your mailbox by 8am for your postal worker on Saturday, May 11.
  • That’s it!

Food from this drive helps Food Lifeline fill the shelves of local food banks, shelters, and meal programs across Western Washington. While one bag of food may seem small, a little goes a long way and Stamp Out Hunger succeeds every year thanks to the donations of generous neighbors like you!

Food Lifeline is again teaming up with Instacart to help stock the shelves of food banks across Western Washington. This is Instacart’s third year as the presenting sponsor of Food Lifeline’s 2024 Stamp Out Hunger event, providing financial support and a team of volunteers to help round up donations.

Every gift supports your neighbors facing food insecurity and advances our mission.


Stamp Out Hunger is a great Saturday volunteer opportunity for everyone ages 16+! We’ll send you and your volunteer compatriots to a local post office where you can help load donated bags of food for our drivers to bring back to the Hunger Solution Center. The action takes place outdoors and requires some standing and lifting.
