EUGENE, Ore.--The Stamp Out Hunger food drive begins this Saturday. The drive is happening nationwide, but locally, the food goes to Food for Lane County. 

Participating is easy: just leave a bag of non-perishable food by your mailbox. Your local letter carrier will pick up the bags as they walk their route. Items like pasta, peanut butter, and canned goods are great options. Organizers ask that participants avoid glass containers.

Since 1993, the Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has been the largest one-day drive in the United States.
