Postal workers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across the nation will join forces in the largest one-day food drive in the nation.

During Saturday’s Stamp Out Hunger event, people can leave nonperishable food items in a bag near their mailbox and mail carriers will pick up the donations. People with post office boxes may leave food at their local post office.

All donated food will be disbursed in the communities where they were collected. Last year, more than 71 million pounds was collected nationwide, including 10,000 pounds locally, between Pendleton, Hermiston, and Milton-Freewater (Branch 909).
