Postal food drive Saturday
On that day, mail carriers will collect non-perishable food donations from homes as they deliver mail along their routes.
The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Food Drive - held in conjunction with the Postal Service - is the largest one-day food drive in the nation. This joint effort helps feed families in all 50 states.
Last year, 70.4 million pounds of food was collected across the country, resulting in more than 1 billion pounds of food collected since the drive began 20 years ago.
To participate in the 20th Stamp Out Hunger food drive, people are encouraged to leave 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 12.
Letter carriers will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to the local food bank.
