Letter Carrier Food Drive Tomorrow(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Before you head out to enjoy the weekend tomorrow, don’t forget to set your bag of non-perishable food by your mailbox: your letter carrier will pick it up as part of the 22nd annual Letter Carriers’ Food Drive. “Too many people in this country are still going hungry every day,” NALC President Fredric Rolando says. Food banks and shelter supplies tend to dwindle to critically low levels in the spring, notes Community Services Agency Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy. “And because many school meal programs are suspended during summer months, millions of children are left scrambling to find alternate sources of nutrition.” McKirchy also says “it’s important to check expiration dates of your donations and only donate food that has not yet expired.”
