Postal Carriers Collecting Food Donations Saturday

Postal Carriers Collecting Food Donations Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Postal carriers in the north country will be delivering Saturday, but they also will be picking up food.

It's the United States Postal Service annual food drive where residents put canned food out by their mailbox so workers can collect it and eventually give it to local food pantries.  

Postal carrier Jeff Rutigliano says last year in Watertown, they collected 50,000 pounds of food.

"we don't mind doing it at all. It's community service and we're proud to be able to do it," he said.

Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect food from postal customers.

The Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive is the largest one-day food drive in the nation.
