"Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive Saturday

Previous year they collected enough food to provide over 350,000 meals to families in the 34-county service area of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

Dean Crisman has worked at the post office for 22 years, and says he's happy to deliver mail, food, and smiles to families. "People want to help their neighbors". Partnering with the Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank, Salina Letter Carriers, community groups, and volunteers, we're working on the issue of hunger and poverty. "In the past, we've done better than that".

Hopefully there are non-perishable food items in your pantry that you can afford to donate.

Last year, 72 million pounds of food were donated. Monetary donations can also be made online at feedinghope.org or by calling 405-600-3136. In some neighborhoods, it's even more than that.

"Too many people in this country are going hungry", said Rolando. I guess they know how important it is.

After the food is picked up it is taken to a variety of places, including the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

Erie News Now stopped by the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwestern Pa. where donations of nonperishable food put out by mailboxes were collected and weighed this evening. The nation's 175,000 letter carriers will collect donations left by residents near their mail boxes.

Local letter carriers across American help give back for a good cause. This is a nationwide food drive, so everyone can participate.

In Columbus, the food is distributed by the United Way of Lowndes County.

Last year, postal workers gathered more than 90,000 pounds of food for the Westmoreland County Food Bank. This particular food drive usually doesn't produce a lot of bulk items.

"Usually we are getting between 40,000 and 60,000 pounds of food", said Raymond. 16 million are children, according to ACCESS.

"For them, it really helps out".

Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon).
