Stamp Out Hunger 2016 Recap Report

Summary of Results

UFCW was a national sponsor of the 24th annual Letter Carrier’s Food Drive. With the International participating for the very first time, we helped the Stamp Out Hunger food drive collect 80 million pounds of food – shattering the previous record of 77 million. 

While promoting the food drive, we highlighted the role UCW plays in feeding Americans, both the haves and the have-nots. We also demonstrated our support of local communities to the general public, customers, the media and Members of Congress.

Hill Outreach:

We launched the first-ever “Congressional Food Drive” so that Members of Congress could join us in raising local awareness. On the Thursday before the food drive, UFCW members and International staff went to seven Capitol Hill offices to collect food donations directly from Members of Congress. All of these stops included a photo that was posted on social media so that constituents back in a home state or district could be made more aware of the upcoming food drive.
