The National Association of Letter Carriers is the chief organizer of the nation’s largest one-day food drive in the nation on Saturday, May 13, 2017. Residents put out non-perishable food donations on that day, which letter carriers collect as they deliver mail along their postal routes. The food is then taken to local food banks. The food drive has collected more than 1.3 billion pounds of food since the national drive began in 1992. Last year, the postal carriers delivered over 22,000 pounds of food to the AJFB!

Our team works tirelessly developing programs that result in meaningful change. And that change is what leads step by step into a brighter future.
Working together, you donated over 19,000 pounds of food to the Apache Junction Food Bank
Thank you Letter Carriers!
