Food Drive Hopes to Deliver Results

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA - A food drive to help feed needy families is hoping to deliver results.

The United States Postal Service is hoping to stamp out hunger with your help and some grocery bags.

Every second Saturday in May, grocery bags come out and are placed at mail boxes.

Letter carriers across the nation collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices.

The food is sorted, and delivered to an area food bank or pantry, where it is available for needy families.

Although the areas we went to weren't busy, some say it's important to give.

"I just went to the cabinet and pulled out things I thought I could bring, so, I was thankful I could help. I think we need to help each other and be a community. Every little bit does help, yes," said Sharon Tanner who donated.

 The drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 20 years.

The stamp out hunger food campaign has received many accolades including the Presidential Certificate of Achievement.
