Position Description

Help Us Stamp Out Hunger!

Millions of Americans live from one day to the next uncertain where their next meal will come from. According to the latest research provided by the San Diego Hunger Coalition, an estimated 504,829 (1 in 6) people in San Diego County are food insecure, a sad statistic that helps to reinforce the importance of our annual national Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, to be held this year on Saturday, May 12. As a food sorting volunteer, you will sort and organize non-perishable food items that have been donated from households throughout San Diego County, so they can get in the hands of families that need them.

Since the nation’s largest single-day food drive began in 1993, letter carriers-ably assisted by untold thousands of family members, friends and other food sorting volunteers-have collected more than 1.5 billion pounds of non-perishable food left by customers’ mailboxes and delivered to local food banks in more than 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam.

Help United Way of San Diego County support the Stamp Out Hunger(r) Food Drive as a Food Sorting Volunteer in this year's Day of Action!
