The 26th annual Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger food drive will be held today when carriers on their routes will collect donations for local food pantries. As the demand for food assistance continues to rise, the Regional Food Bank depends upon the generosity of the community to support its mission of "Fighting Hunger..."

Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters.

Every donation makes a difference, and all of the donations really add up. "If you leave food, it's going to get picked up and we'll get it".

Saturday, local letter carriers, Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts will be out in force around the community.

Here at home, thousands have been fed with the food from Stamp Out Hunger.

The Mayoral Committee, which was appointed by the outgoing Executive Mayor dissolves, with immediate effect, due to the vacancy. She claims she fell out of favour with the party over her spatial transformation agenda for Cape Town.

If you're interested in helping, the food bank is looking for extra volunteers to reach their goal, which is around 100,000 pounds of food.

"We've been successful in previous years of being number one, so hopefully we'll be able to do that again this year", Hoffman told News 4.

They can't do it without your help.

Julio Alonso, the HHFB executive director, said a year ago was excellent for food donations, in part because it was the 25th anniversary for the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

As a letter carrier for over 20 years, Penny definitely sees the benefit of the Stamp out Hunger event. Watch the live interview in the video below.
