    Largest one-day food drive for hungry today

    Today is the 10th annual "Letter Carrier Food Drive," the largest one-day food drive in the country.

    People can feed the hungry by placing nonperishable food items in bags near their mailboxes. Local mail carriers and a host of volunteers will take care of the rest.

    Boy Scouts on bicycles and volunteers in vehicles will take the food to the post offices, where it will be sorted, then shipped to food banks.
