Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation.

Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 24 years.

Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. Nearly 1,500 NALC branches in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands are involved.

Thanks, Jeff! I'll remember to put a bag of non perishable food out for the mail carrier on Saturday.

Also might want to add that it shouldn't be expired. Plenty of people will pass along their past dated canned goods for donation, it's just not a good practice.

This was a success overall in Duluth. Our church helped the postal workers collect the food. There were a lot of homes that participated (probably 20% of all homes). The food was varied and there was some pretty good stuff.

I hope the rest of the state had as good of a turn-out.
