Stamp Out Hunger Day

It's all part of the annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

Postal service workers continue an annual tradition on Saturday, May 11, by collecting food donations left at mailboxes of generous Americans.

It benefits "Feeding America" the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization, which provides food assistance to 37 million Americans every year.

"The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is important for our local communities because it helps stock food banks and pantries for summer, a time when there's an increased need for food assistance, especially for children who are out of school," said Fredric V. Rolando, president of the National Assocation of Letter Carriers

To take part, simply leave a bag on non-perishable food tomorrow in the place where your mail is normally delivered.

Last year, more than 70 million pounds of food were donated.
