MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Along with delivering up our mail, letter carriers picked up some packages along their routes Saturday. It’s Stamp Out Hunger Day, the largest single-day food drive in the country.

Postal workers collected bags of food left by people on their regular routes. More than 2,000 carriers in the Twin Cities took part.

The goal is to collect 1.2 million pounds of food for Second Harvest Heartland. That’s enough to provide 1 million meals for people in need.

If you still want to participate, mail carriers will pick up donations on Monday too.
