This Saturday, May 10, the US Postal Service is running their 16th Annual Stamp Out Hunger campaign. During the day long drive, they'll gather food in over 10,000 cities, in each of the 50 United States.
To participate, all you have to do is leave a bag of non-perishable food — canned veggies, meats, soup, cereal, pasta, and rice — near your mailbox. Be sure to put it out before the postal carrier arrives. They'll take it back to the post office where it will then be delivered to a local food bank, pantry or shelter.
However, citizens living in New York City and Chicago are encouraged to take their food to a local post office branch because the mail carriers won't be able to easily transport all the donations they receive.
To find out if your community is participating, call your nearest post office.
