This Saturday, May 9th, letter carriers all over Rochester will be picking up non-parishable foods left by your mailbox or brought to the post office and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters.
All citizens need do is to place a box or can of non-perishable food next to their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers mail on Saturday, May 9. The carrier will do all the rest. The food is taken back to a postal station, sorted, and then delivered to an area food bank or pantry. There it is available for needy families.
Some 35.5 million people face hunger every day in America, including 13 million children. This drive is one way people can help those right in their own city or town who need help.
