The Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive provides individuals and families in need, support through basic nutrition.
The National Letter Carriers Association teamed up with the Food Bank of Siouxland annually to "Stamp Out Hunger".
This saturday Postal Carriers will collect non-perishable food donations.
Volunteers collected the donated food from the mails trucks placing them in carts to be stored in rental trucks that haul the food off to the food pantry itself.
"I just ask people the bag that was delivered to their house feel free to leave the sack underneath your mailbox and the carrier will pick it up on his rounds", Hassler said. You can also make a donation - of food, time or cash - directly to Roadrunner Food Bank. "We wouldn't be able to help our neighbors living with hunger without your help". With the economic struggles many Americans face, this food drive is as critical as ever.
