Don't Forget - Stamp Out Hunger -Saturday May 14

This is copied from an email I received today from Labels for Education.

Fill a Bag. Feed Families.
On Saturday, May 14, 2011, you can donate non-perishable* food to help combat hunger right here in the U.S. by taking part in Stamp Out Hunger, the nation’s largest single-day food drive.
We know that during the year you already make a difference by supporting your school through the purchase of participating Labels for Education® products, but on May 14 you can help Stamp Out Hunger by donating these products at your mailbox. It’s a great way to help the 50 million Americans that are at risk of hunger.**
Here's how to participate:
  1. Buy non-perishable food items. Many Labels for Education participating products qualify! Visit our Participating Products page to see a list.
  2. Place at mailbox for pickup & your letter carrier will deliver to a local food bank.
Learn more at HelpStampOutHunger.com to help nourish everyone’s potential.

*Donate items like canned meats, fish, soup, vegetables; bottled juice, pasta, cereal and rice that do not require refrigeration. Please do not include items that have expired or in glass containers.
