For more than 30 years, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) has conducted an annual nationwide food drive on the second Saturday in May.
Using the postal networks, letter carriers collect nonperishable food donations as they deliver mail along their postal routes.
The drive is held in 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam.
To participate, place your nonperishable items in a bag next to your mailbox on Saturday, May 11 and your mail carrier will handle the rest.
Over the course of its history, the food drive has collected over 1.9 billion pounds of food to help feed our neighbors. n
