Stamp Out Hunger with union-made products

Letter Carriers nationwide will help restock food shelves in their local communities May 13 during the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. It’s the largest one-day food drive in the country –and a shining example of the many ways union members give back to their communities every day.

So why not double the impact of your donation this year by filling the bag – or bags – left near your mailbox with union-made products?

The AFL-CIO’s Union Label and Service Trades Department has compiled a list of non-perishable foods packaged or processed by union members and widely available in Cub Foods, Rainbow, Lunds and Byerly’s, Cooper’s and other union grocery scores.
