Local letter carriers will collect bags of non-perishable food items left at mailboxes on Saturday as part of Stamp Out Hunger, the 22nd annual national food drive conducted by the National Letter Carrier's Association.

The mail carriers, who are volunteering their time to support the effort, will deliver food to established drop-off points throughout the community. From there, more than 15 local, non-profit food pantries will divide the food.

Through the support of organizations including Campbell's Soup, ValPak, the United Way and the AFL-CIO, the NLCA is helping to address the issue of hunger in America. Over the past 22 years, more than one billion pounds of food have been collected nationally through the program. In 2013, more than 60,000 pounds of food was donated by the community and was distributed in York County.
