Nick Cannon Stamp Out Hunger

Nick Cannon has signed on to support Stamp Out Hunger, the largest one-day food drive in America. Cannon says that the issue of hunger is close to his heart: "My family turned to food pantries for assistance from time to time when I was growing up, so I know first-hand how important this food drive is."

Stamp Out Hunger takes place this Saturday, May 14. To participate, place non-perishable foods in a bag and leave the bag next to your mailbox. Postal workers will pick up these bags and take them to food banks.

Ideal items to donate, according to the Stamp Out Hunger website, include canned foods of all kinds, cereal, rice, pasta and bottled juice that doesn't require refrigeration. Avoid items that require refrigeration, are expired or are packaged in glass containers.
