Rain Or Shine: Letter Carriers' Food Drive Helps Fight Hunger In Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The 2015 Letter Carriers' Food Drive takes place this Saturday.

According to officials, nearly 150 cities in Oklahoma are participating, and all the food will go directly to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

All you have to do is fill a plastic bag with canned goods and leave it by the mailbox the morning of May 9. Letter carriers collect the bags on their regular mail routes and turn them over to Regional Food Bank volunteers.

In preparation for the possible severe weather on Saturday, consider taking your canned food donations to your local post office Friday or Saturday. Letter carriers will still collect canned food and other non-perishable food donations by your mailbox on Saturday, rain or shine.

You can also make donations at Oklahoma City metro fire stations through May 13. Most needed items include: canned meats, meat-based soups, canned fruits, canned vegetables, peanut butter, and rice and beans.

Monetary donations can also be made online at regionalfooodbank.org, or by calling (405)-600-3136. Officials said every dollar donated will provide five meals for a hungry Oklahoman.

According to officials, last year, the Feeding Hope and Letter Carriers' Food Drive raised enough food and funds to provide more than 7.3 million meals for hungry children, families and seniors in central and western Oklahoma.
