This may be the easiest way to help alleviate hunger on Long Island: This Saturday, May 11, simply place nonperishable foods next to your mailbox before regular mail delivery. Local letter carriers will pick up the items and bring them to local food banks.
That’s the idea behind the 21st annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive, an annual collaboration between the National Association of Letter Carriers (the labor union of most of America’s letter carriers) and the Campbell Soup Company.
Last year the association's Long Island branch collected 444,000 pounds of food for local hunger-relief organizations.
