Stamp Out Hunger, the nation's largest single-day food drive, provides assistance to those who struggle to put food on the table every day..... In the last 22 years, more than 1.2 billion pounds of food donations have been collected.

  Residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable food items, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, peanut butter, pasta, rice or cereal, next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery....

And local letter carriers will collect these food donations as they deliver mail and take them to local food banks.
