SCRANTON — Congressman Matt Cartwright and postal carriers from different communities collected food donations for food banks and shelters in Lackawanna County.

The 22nd annual “Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive” took place on Saturday where community members left non-perishable foods by their mailboxes to be picked up by postal carriers.

The event, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers, helps benefit food banks and shelters restock after the winter.

The “Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive” is the largest one-day food drive in the nation.

    Many thanks to those who donated food to the Postal Service food drive today. It took all day to sort through the mountain of food brought to the food pantry by these generous people. Many will be fed, our shelves are fully stocked! Praise God, and may He richly bless those who gave.
