Stamp Out Hunger Food Collection in Prospect CT, Sat May 14


For the 24rd year, postal carriers will be delivering mail and hopefully bringing back to their offices more than they deliver.


Saturday, May 14 is the one day of the year when a mailbox can be used for something other than a delivery. It will be the pick-up point to collect non-perishable food items for local food banks.

 Stamp Out Hunger Food Collection in Prospect CT, Sat May 14

Those willing to help should just collect non-perishable food items, such as canned meats, soups, juice vegetables, or boxed pasta, rice and cereals. Items that have expired or are in glass containers should not be donated.


Place their items in bags, near their mailbox, and the letter carriers will see that they are delivered to the local food pantries.


 Although not expressed, it’s also possible to deliver their donations to the local postal branch for collection as well.  Here in Prospect, the post office is on Waterbury Rd, Rt 69 but wll close at noon.
