On May 14, the rural and city letter carriers in Otter Tail County will deliver much more than mail when they walk and drive along their postal routes. They will also collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers participating in the 24th annual NALC National Food Drive - the largest one-day food drive in the nation. The donated food will be distributed directly to local food pantries.

United Way of Otter Tail County and the National Association of Letter Carriers are pleased to partner with this event and appreciate the support of the communities in Otter Tail County.

Last year Otter Tail County Letter Carriers collected more than 6,000 pounds of food which went to help the 11.2 percent of children and families in Otter Tail County who live below the poverty level.

It's so easy to make a donation: simply leave a bag of non-perishable food by your mailbox on Saturday, May 14, or drop off food at your local post office on May 13-16. That's all it takes. You may also show your support for Stamp out Hunger on Facebook or find more information about this national food drive at
