This year marks the 26th Annual Letter Carriers’ Food Drive! For Emergency Food Network, this single day is one of the most important food drives of the year. We receive close to 300,000 pounds of food, enough to stock Pierce County food bank shelves through the summer.

To help make this day a success, our friends at the United States Post Office need our help! Driving Teams are needed! Driving Teams are groups of 2-4 volunteers with a personal vehicle drive around designated neighborhoods and pick food up in the community. The volunteer session is 10:00 am - 3:00 pm, however, the end time is flexible.

Post office locations needing volunteer assistance:
  • FIfe Post Office
  • Lakewood Post Office
  • Parkland Post Office
  • Proctor Post Office
  • Tacoma Post Office
  • University Place Post Office

To register to volunteer, please email Merrit Reed (EFN’s Coordinator of Volunteer Activities) at merrit@efoodnet.org or call (253) 584-1040.
