The U.S. Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers
will host the 21st annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive Saturday.
Providing food to local food banks and pantries that rely heavily on donations, the food drive is expected to collect more than 70 million pounds of food for the food insecure in the area, or those living at risk of hunger.
Local letter carriers will collect food donations left at the mailboxes and deliver them to food banks and other hunger relief organizations, such as pantries, soup kitchens and shelters.
To participate, just leave a bag of nonperishable food items by the mailbox on Saturday; letter carriers will then pick up and deliver the food to a local food bank. Examples of nonperishable items include peanut butter, canned soup, canned meats and fish, canned vegetables, fruits and juices, boxed goods (such as cereal), and pasta and rice.
