Stamp Out Hunger 2022
May 14 marks the 30th anniversary of The Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive. It is the largest annual one-day food drive across the country and in Idaho. We have a goal of bringing in 150K pounds of food (that’s over 125k meals!!!). Simply leave your donation of non-perishable food items next to your mailbox before the delivery of mail on Saturday, May 14. Letter carriers in The Treasure Valley and Pocatello will collect the donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes, and the food will be distributed through The Idaho Foodbank to its food pantry partners around state. You can also drop off donations at participating post offices in the Treasure Valley and Pocatello.
Stamp Out Hunger® , sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) helps feed millions of Americans. You can make a financial donation here.
Thank you to Blue Sky Bagels for helping us show appreciation for United States Postal Service workers to pick up and deliver donated bags of food put out at local mailboxes. Blue Sky Bagels generously donated hundreds of hot, yummy bagels to those doing this arduous work!

We are inviting our community to help us throw or hand build as many bowls for the Empty Bowls fundraiser as possible. We are providing free clay, and free instruction that day for anyone who will donate their bowl to the Food Bank. This is a great opportunity to try to work with clay for free and contribute to an amazing cause. Later on, we will offer discounts for painting of these bowls.
Our event will run all day long. Our studio will transform into a clay studio for the day.
Painting for the Empty Bowls Fundraiser will also be possible, if our customers do not want to get dirty. We will offer a $2 discount for each painted and donated bowl.
