Letter carriers with the U.S. Postal Service spent Saturday (May 12) with volunteers for the 20th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

The carriers collected foodstuffs along their routes and at Post Offices for local food banks across the country. All food collected on the Big Island will go towards The Food Basket to feed individuals and family on the island.

At the Hilo Airport Post Office volunteers from the Postal Service, HSTA teacher’s union, Boy Scouts and other volunteers spent the day unloading food donations from postal vehicles, sorting them and preparing them for transport to The Food Basket.

Anyone wanting to donate food can still drop off supplies at The Food Basket offices in Kona and Hilo along with any fire station according to Chantelle Belay of The Food Basket.
