Nick Cannon is the latest celebrity to take a stand against hunger with Feeding America, the National Association of Letter Carriers and Campbell Soup Company in their annual fight to Stamp Out Hunger across America on Saturday, May 14.

The radio host, actor and rapper will appear in radio and print public service announcements.

Both promote the campaign and urge Americans to help their neighbors in need by donating a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods – such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal – next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 14th.

In its 19th year, Stamp Out Hunger has become the nation’s largest single-day food drive.

In 2010, letter carriers collected a record-setting total of 77.1 million pounds of food donations along their postal routes. This pushed the 18-year total to more than one billion pounds of food.

Cannon also is appearing in a television public service announcement which will be available to view on the drive’s YouTube channel ( as well as its Facebook fan page (

Speaking on his campaign to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’, Cannon has released a statement saying,

“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. With more than 50 million Americans living at risk of hunger, please join me and millions of other generous Americans on Saturday, May 14 by placing a non-perishable food donation next to your mailbox to help the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger.”
