'Stamp Out Hunger' food drive will help with summer demand, Tampa Bay food banks say

Mail carriers across Tampa Bay will drop a gray plastic bag in mailboxes Friday ahead of the national Stamp Out Hunger food drive collection taking place Saturday. They're hoping communities will fill the bag with non-perishable items for them to pick up on their mail distribution routes and donate to local food banks. “There’s not another company in America that can put a bag and a postcard in every mailbox, and then… as we drive past every house and every neighborhood… will pick up that food and bring it back to the post office and donate it all back to the food banks to help feed the community,” said Florida President for Letter Carriers Al Friedman.
