Helping others in Petaluma hasn’t been easier than this. Stamp Out Hunger is the largest single-day food drive in the nation. Petaluma USPS Letter Carriers will collect non-perishable food from the people/companies on their routes. This food will go to the Petaluma Salvation Army who distributes more than six tons of food per month to the needy in our community!
Donations have been down, but needs are higher than ever before. We are absolutely dependent upon the support of our community to help Petalumans in need. YOU can make a difference!
Please (right now before you forget) set a reminder in your online calendar, phone, or just ask your mother to remind you to set food out by your mailbox on the morning of Saturday, May 9th. And better yet, why not put the bag together the day before and have it by your door as a reminder?
Though all non-perishable food is welcome (no glass or expired food please), this is what is most needed:
- Canned Meat (Tuna, Chicken, etc.)
- Peanut Butter
- Soups & Stews
- Dry Beans
- Dry Pasta
- Pasta Sauce
- Dry Milk
- Canned Fruit
- Snack Foods (Things like trail mixes, popcorn, healthy snacks, etc.)
