Stamp Out Hunger in its 21st year

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- For 21 years now, the United States Postal Service has tried to do their part to help fill local food banks, and this year they are at it again.

The annual Stamp Out Hunger campaign aims to beat last year's national total of 70 million pounds of non-perishable food. Minnesota alone collected one million pounds a year ago.

All you had to do was put the non-perishable food in a bag, and then place the bag by the mailbox for pick-up by the person who delivers your mail.

For those in Rochester, the food then heads to the Channel One Food Bank to be put to good use.

Stamp Out Hunger is the largest one-day food drive in the country.
