Letter Carrier's Food Drive

by Xavier Walton, xwalton@k2tv.com

For the last 20 years blue bags have flooded the United States on the second Saturday of May.  Last year with millions of people across the country going hungry, the National Association of Letter Carriers collected more than 70 million pounds of food during their annual food drive. 

Some say this is one of the biggest food drives in America and so far in its first 20 years there's been 1.2 billion pounds of food collected.



If you missed out on the food drive this weekend it's not to late too late to participate; Letter carriers will still be collecting bags of non-perishable food items on Monday and Tuesday.
