Mail Carriers Try To Stamp Out Hunger

STAUNTON - Mail carriers across the valley are on a mission to put an end to hunger.

It's a part of a campaign called "Stamp Out Hunger."

Mail carriers pick up food left in bags on their routes and bring it back to post offices.

The food is loaded onto trucks and sent to the blue ridge area food bank.

One of the volunteers says that there are so many adults and kids who rely on the food bank.

"You see people on the street and stuff like begging and everything like that and you want to look away, but then when you go somewhere and you work with children one on one who understand that this child might go home and not eat until they come back and see you on Monday, it's really hurtful because if you don't bring it from home then who's going to do that job," says Kathleen Macias who's a volunteer.

If you still want to donate and missed your mail carrier, you can drop off your items at the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank in Verona. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
