  • Albuquerque participates in nation's largest single-day food drive

Carriers with the U.S. Postal Service picked up donations of canned food, which will end up at local food banks.

To participate in this year's food drive, the National Association of Letter Carriers is asking you to leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox.

Stamp out Hunger has been feeding people for more than 25 years, and all of the food collected stays in the community to help battle hunger locally, a simple concept that has proved successful.

Letter carriers with the US Postal Service are used to dropping off packages along their daily delivery routes. People all over the area left food out for their postal carriers to pick up.

In 2017, Madison County donated 22,000 pounds of food to the Stamp Out Hunger campaign. By 4:30 p.m. four trucks had been filled as more food made its way into the back parking lot of the post office.

"It's the largest one-day food drive probably in the world", said letter carrier and former event coordinator Kevin Mustaine. They are a middle man for customers who want to donate to local food banks. This year ACCESS is expecting up to 60,000 pounds of donations.

"This is the 20th year that the post office is doing the national food drive", he said.

130,000 pounds of food was collected between the West and East side of Green Bay.

The local Boy Scout troop will help to process and sort the food on Saturday, and some local restaurants have volunteered to do their part by supplying food to the volunteers and carriers who process the donations on Saturday. The items most in demand include canned fruit and vegetables, soups, canned meats, hot and cold cereal, pasta, and boxed or ready-made meals (i.e. macaroni and cheese).

After all, it takes the whole community to help stamp out hunger.
