Just a friendly reminder about the letter carrier food drive on May 8. Here's some more info from the food drive website:

The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) announced today that the nation’s largest annual food drive to combat hunger will be conducted this year on Saturday, May 8. On that day, letter carriers will collect non-perishable donations from homes as they deliver mail along their postal routes. The 18th annual NALC National Food Drive to “Stamp Out Hunger” is the largest one-day food drive in the nation. Carriers collected a record 73.4 million pounds of food in last year’s drive. The drive is held annually on the second Saturday in May in over 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam.

I couldn't find anything on the food drive website about how to participate, but if I recall correctly from years past, you just leave out a brown bag with your donation so the mail carrier can pick it up when he/she delivers the mail.
