Food and mail a perfect pairing Saturday

The U.S. Postal Service's letter carriers will be carting more than just the mail during an annual food drive Saturday.
The National Association of Letter Carriers and the Postal Service are holding the Stamp Out Hunger food drive to help hungry families in communities across the nation, according to information on the food drive's Web site.
Residents can place non-perishable food items in bags by their mailbox Saturday before their mail arrives and letter carriers will pick them up and take them to local food banks.
The event is the largest single-day food drive in the country. Last year, carriers delivered more than 73 million pounds of donated food, the Web site states.
Residents are asked not to donate expired items or food in glass containers.
