'Stamp Out Hunger' food drive set for Saturday

INDIANAPOLIS ― Letter carriers from across Indiana will help to Stamp Out Hunger on Saturday as a part of their 22nd annual food drive benefiting the state’s food banks.

The food drive benefits Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana in Muncie through a partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Last year, letter carriers collected more than 74 million pounds of food feeding an estimated 30 million people nationally. Over the course of its 21-year history, the drive has collected more than 1 billion pounds of food.

Residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing nonperishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday. Hoosier letter carriers will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to regional food banks and emergency food relief agencies.
