National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive - May 13th, 2017                      Location List

 

This annual event is about 20 years old in Minnesota . The Letter Carrier’s Union teamed up with Second Harvest Heartland Food Bank to collect food for people in need in the Twin Cities area. In 2008 the MTSA was approached with a request for assistance in the transportation area. We agreed to provide logistic support (trucks) and over the years it has grown tremendously. The amount of food collected has

steadily increased and 2016's goal was 1.2 million pounds of food. Major partners for this drive are MTSA, Kare 11, Land O Lakes, Cub Foods, WCCO Newsradio 830, Second Harvest Heartland and local letter carriers of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

 

Our role has evolved into a major sponsor of this event. Our members have generously donated their equipment and personnel on a Saturday in May (National Moving Month) to assist in this very worthwhile event. Yearly we provide equipment and personnel at a multitude of sites around the TWIN CITIES and have also provided assistance in St. Cloud and Mankato for their food drives. This year the event will be held on Saturday, May 13th. 

The grand total for the 2016 NALC food drive was 1,132,660 pounds collected or an increase of 68,866 pounds over last year. The total poundage represents almost 896,000 meals to feed our friends and neighbors. Of the total pounds collected MTSA moved approximately 25% in our 20 sites.

It is never too early to choose a location and participate in this very worthwhile event.  To reserve your spot, contact Howard at (651) 646-4075.
