The National Association of Letter Carriers leads the one-day drive with help from USPS and other partners.
Since the drive began in 1993, total food donations have surpassed 1.6 billion pounds, including 75.3 million pounds last year.
The drive is held in the spring when many school breakfast and lunch programs are about to be suspended for the summer, leaving millions of children to find alternative sources of nutrition.

The Stamp Out Hunger site has additional information, including a toolkit for participants, promotional materials, community engagement guidelines and more.
