Mail carriers to hold food drive Saturday

Wichita-area mail carriers will hold their annual food drive Saturday as part of a national effort to "Stamp Out Hunger."

Post office patrons who would like to contribute are encouraged to place non-perishable food items in a bag near their mailboxes before their mail is delivered Saturday. Suggested items include canned meats and fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice.

The annual drive, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers, is one of the largest one-day food drives in the country.
