U.S. Postal Service workers to pick up canned food to "stamp out hunger"

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's an easy way to stamp out hunger: simply place canned food on your porch and let the post office do the work.

This Saturday, May 10, local postal workers will pick up food for the annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Louisville's mayor took part in the event on Wednesday, placing the first canned goods to be collected in bags.

Last year, letter carriers collected more than 74 million pounds of food nationally.

The food drive is done in May because most food pantries are running low on supplies from holiday food drives.
