AARP Members are "Stamping Out Hunger"


This Saturday is the 22 nd Anniversary of the "Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive." On May 10, in collaboration with AARP Foundation, NC Feeding America, Inc., US Postal Service, National Association of Letter Carriers, National Rural Carriers Association, AFL-CIO, United Way, Campbell Soup, Publix and others, people from all over the state will be donating food to feed the hungry.

Leave a bag of non-perishable food items at your mailbox, and your postman and letter carriers will pick it up and deliver it to local food banks. Last year, 2.2 million pounds of food were donated through this effort that is helping eradicate food insecurity and hardship in North Carolina.

This week's guest "On the Air," is Christy Simmons of the Central and Eastern North Carolina Food Bank. Listen to the show as she talks about "Stamp Out Hunger" and other ways to join the fight against adult hunger.
