Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 10th: Donate Your Non-Perishable Food Items

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

If you were able to eat a healthy breakfast this morning or make a nourishing dinner for your family last night, you are very fortunate as one out of every six Americans struggles with hunger. But here’s your chance to help! Tomorrow, May 10th, the National Association of Letter Carriers is calling everyone to help “Stamp Out Hunger” with the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Stamp Out Hunger is the largest one-day food drive in the nation and will help feed millions of families in all 50 states!

This is a perfect time for you to go through your stockpile and donate as many non-perishable and unexpired food items as possible to support this cause!  SO…grab your cans of soup, non-glass bottles of Juice, canned fruits and veggies, bags of pasta, cake & brownie mixes, etc. and place all these items in a bag. Then be sure to leave them at your mailbox this Saturday, May 10th as part of the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Your letter carrier will pick up your items and deliver them to local food banks or pantries.

Let’s help make it a success by clearing off our shelves for those in need. I guarantee that you will be able to re-stock those shelves at little to no cost with all the great deals we’re sure to score in the next few months. Are you with me?! :)

(Thanks, Family Savings!)

Earlier today, I posted about some of the different ways to help victims of the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma (you can view that post here). Several of you suggested an easy (and free!) way to help out from afar using Box Tops for Education and their current Facebook promotion (check out this post for all the details).

Comment left by reader, RH:

This suggestion will not cost you anything but will help the school… the Box Tops promotion that is running right now. Instead of selecting your home school, select Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma. Just a few clicks, just like their Facebook page and select the school in the summer countdown and they get 5 free box tops up to 5 million… every little bit will help them.

Here’s what to do if you want use Box Tops to help…

* Head on over to the Box Tops for Education Facebook page,  and “like” them
* Click on the “Summer Countdown” tab


* Enter the school’s zip code (to help support Plaza Towers Elementary School, enter zip code 73160)
* Select this school and they’ll get 5 FREE Box Tops


* And then keep spreading the word!

As most of you already know, Oklahoma City was hit by multiple tornadoes and severe storms yesterday. In addition to killing 24 people, over 120 people have been left wounded and many homes have been completely destroyed. I have received quite a few emails from Hip2Save readers who were directly or indirectly affected by these tornadoes and are asking that we all ban together to provide assistance to those in need.

What can you do?

* Make a donation to the American Red Cross by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

* Make a donation to the Salvation Army by visiting SalvationArmyUSA.org, calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY, or texting the word STORM to 80888 to make a $10 donation.

* Make a monetary donation to the Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief. If you live locally, donations, such as bottled water, work gloves, boots, flashlights, batteries and non-perishable food (NO CLOTHES at this time) can be taken to News 9 at 7401 N Kelley Ave, Oklahoma City, OK.

Now it’s you turn… what suggestions do you have?


And to all of you in Oklahoma that have been affected, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
