This Saturday, the U.S Postal Service and National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct the nation's largest single-day food drive, Stamp out Hunger, for the 21st consecutive year.
Stamp Out Hunger is a nationwide effort that provides food to local food banks and pantries.
In 2012, Americans donated more than 70 million pounds of food. Despite the hefty donation, more than 50 million Americans - including 17 million children- are at a risk for hunger.
All you have to do is fill a bag with non-perishable food items and place it next to your mailbox. Examples of non-perishable items include: peanut butter, canned soup, pasta, and rice.
