Fighting Hunger In The United States

The US Postal Service is trying to stamp out hunger in our country. An estimated 35 million people are at risk of hunger in the United States that includes 12 million children. The Postal Service is preparing for its single day food drive which starts tomorrow.

Workers are asking us to put bags of canned food next to our mailboxes on Saturday, carriers will pick them up, and the goods will be donated to local food banks. Since the drive started, the Postal Service has collected more than 3 quarters of a billion pounds of food.
