The National Association of Letter Carriers, the River Bend Foodbank and the United Way of the Quad-Cities Area will take part in the 22nd annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive on Saturday.

Donations of nonperishable food in cans and boxes can be bagged and placed by residential mailboxes before the time of regular mail delivery. Letter carriers will pick up donations on their regular routes. People without mailboxes can contact their local post office to participate.

Recommended donations include canned soups, canned vegetables, pasta, rice, peanut butter and tuna.

The goal is to collect more than 100,000 pounds of food. The drive is scheduled to help those in need during the critical summer months when supplies at the food bank are depleted.
