The U.S. Postal Service on Saturday will conduct its annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive, during which letter carriers collect food donations left at mailboxes and deliver them to hunger-relief organizations.
During the 22nd annual drive, the 210,000 carriers across the nation will collect nonperishable food donations left in mailboxes and then deliver them to a local food bank or other organization in the community, according to the USPS.
“Stamp Out Hunger” is the largest single-day food drive in the United States. In 2013, more than 74 million pounds of food was donated, bringing the total since the drive’s inception to nearly 1.3 billion pounds of food.
To donate, leave a bag of nonperishable food where a letter carrier normally delivers the mail on Saturday. More information is available at local post offices or here.
