Stamp Out Hunger food drive seeks volunteers

By , Columbian staff writer

The National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive is returning to Vancouver this year for its 30th anniversary after a two-year hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The food drive will take place May 14.

To participate in this year’s food drive, simply leave a nonperishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox by 9 a.m. on May 14, and your letter carrier or volunteer will do the rest.

You can also donate online at

Event organizers are seeking volunteers to participate on the day of the event. Volunteers will assist mail carriers with picking up food.

To sign up to volunteer or to learn more, call Don Young, food drive coordinator, at 360-904-6972 or email
