Share food to "Stamp Out" hunger: mail carriers collecting today

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Mail carriers are teaming up with Second Harvest for the nation's largest single-day food drive today.

To participate in the Stamp Out Hunger food drive, leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, peanut butter, rice or cereal, next to your mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery today.

The food drive benefits Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.

In 2012, letter carriers collected food donations from more than 10,000 communities, helping to put millions of meals on the tables
of Americans in need.

Last year’s drive also marked the ninth consecutive year that people donated more than 70 million pounds of food to the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
