Stamp Out Hunger

Chester-Andover Family Center
Pursuing Our Mission

“Providing a Helping Hand to Persons and Families in Need.”


The Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive
will be held on Saturday, May 12.

It is the largest one-day food drive in America.
Help us provide food for Chester-Andover Food Shelf participants.

All food collected will be transported by
Family Center Volunteers from the Chester Post Office
to The Chester-Andover Family Center Food Shelf.

When do I put out the food?

On Saturday, May 12, just set out your non-perishable food well before your letter carrier’s normal pick-up time. Your letter carrier will be delivering and collecting mail as usual, on top of collecting food donations, so that pickup time could be slightly later than usual.

What do you mean by “non-perishable food?”

 The top requested non-perishable food items are: cereal, spaghetti sauce, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meals (such as soups, chili and pasta), 100% juice, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, canned protein (tuna, chicken and turkey), beans (canned or dry). You also can donate healthy, low-sodium, low-sugar items such as oatmeal, whole grains, and canola or olive oil.
