Amarillo, TX - Zack Wilson with the High Plains Food Bank joined us this morning on The Early show to tell us about the nation's largest one-day food drive, Stamp Out Hunger.
On Saturday, May 8th, Panhandle-area letter carriers will again help eradicate hunger with your help in order to provide assistance to the rapidly increasing number of Americans who are struggling with hunger.
All you have to do is place your non-perishable food items in a bag by your mailbox, and your letter carrier will collect it on Saturday. Not all communities are participating, so if you live outside of Amarillo, you may want to contact your local Post Office to see if they will be collecting items.
Last year, letter carriers across Amarillo collected over 28,000 pounds of food and product for the High Plains Food Bank. The goal this year is to raise 30,000 pounds of food for those in need across the Texas Panhandle.
