MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

On Saturday, May 11, residents across America will be asked to help "Stamp Out Hunger" in the annual U.S. Postal Service Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

The one-day food drive is the nation's largest single-day food drive across America - and even includes Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands.

You can help stamp out hunger as easily as checking your mailbox.

Just leave a bag of non-perishable food items by your mailbox on Saturday, May 11. Your letter carrier will pick it up and the items will be delivered to a local food bank.

Examples of non-perishable food items include:

  • Peanut butter
  • Canned soup
  • Canned meat and fish
  • Canned vegetables, fruits and juices
  • Boxed goods (such as cereal)
  • Pasta and rice

In 2012, letter carriers collected more than 70 million pounds of food donated while on their delivery routes. Nearly 1.2 billion pounds of food have been collected since the drive began in 20 years ago 1993.
