Letter carriers will be helping the hungry on Saturday by picking up grocery items as they deliver mail along their routes.

All post offices in the Pittsburgh area are participating in the 21st “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive, which is expected to collect more than 10,000 pounds of food for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

In many communities, food that is collected will go directly to local food pantries.

Residents are asked to place a bag of non-perishable grocery items packaged in non-glass containers next to their mail box before their regular mail delivery time on Saturday.

The most-needed items include peanut butter, tuna fish, low-sugar cereal, canned vegetables and fruit, disposable diapers, toothpaste and toilet paper.
