For the 11th consecutive year, the Letter Carrier food drive delivers
For the 11th consecutive year, the Letter Carriers' (NALC's) Food Drive collected more than 72 million pounds of food to help restock food banks, pantries and shelters around the country.
The annual food drive-the nation's largest-took place this year on Saturday, May 10, in more than 10,000 cities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam.
Postal customers across the country were asked to leave bags of non-perishable food next to their mailboxes so letter carriers could pick them up and deliver them to local food distribution charities.
Since the annual drive began in 1992, more than 1.3 billion pounds of food have been collected and distributed by NALC and community supporters.
