Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Postal workers will be collecting and delivering more than just your mail this weekend.

That's because they are holding their 14th annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive.

Local members of the National Association Of Letter Carriers are asking you to place non-perishable food items by your mailbox this Saturday.

Last year, postal workers collected more than 71 million pounds of food nationwide.

29 tons were collected across the Wiregrass.

"When the letter carriers in their cities collect the food, the food goes to that local city's pantry or food locker or food bank. Like here in Dothan, it would go to the Dothan food bank and in Ozark, they have a food pantry they take the food to, but wherever they collect it, it stays in that participating city," said Raymond Bixby, Food Drive Coordinator.

"Stamp Out Hunger" is the largest one-day food drive in the nation.
