Hunger affects about 50 million people around the country, including millions of children, senior citizens and veterans.
The nation's largest single-day food drive, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is held each year on the second Saturday each May in 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam.
It provides residents with an easy way to donate food to those in need in the community. Customers simply leave their donation of non-perishable goods next to their mailbox before the delivery of the mail that Saturday. Letter carriers collect the non-perishable food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes, and distribute them to local food banks, pantries and shelters.
Volunteers are needed to collect food from the post office and sort food as well.
