TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona letter carriers will be collecting food as they deliver the mail on Saturday, May 10.  

It's time again for the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive to benefit local food banks.  Just leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag by the mailbox on Saturday, May 10, and the postal carriers will do the rest.

Currently 49 million Americans — one in six — are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Sixteen million are children, and nearly five million seniors over age 60 don't have a reliable supply of food.  Many of them live on fixed incomes and are often too embarrassed to ask for help.

In 2013, 74 million pounds of food was collected by postal carriers nationwide, feeding an estimated 30 million people. Now in its 22nd year, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has collected well over 1 billion pounds of food to date.

Stamp Out Hunger is a partnership with the U.S. Postal Service, Campbell Soup, and Feeding America.
