The National Association of Letter Carriers annual "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive is taking place Saturday, May 12. Place non-perishable food items in bags near your mailbox before your usual mail delivery time to participate. No special bags are required.

All donations are given to local food banks or pantries. The drive is seeking items like cereal, pasta, pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meals, peanut butter and more. Do not donate frozen food, homemade food, expired items or anything in glass containers.

Not every letter carrier is participating in the drive. Contact your local post office for more information.
