FORT WALTON BEACH — Help make a difference in the community by participating in the nation’s and the community’s largest food drive: the 26th annual National Association of Letter Carriers "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive taking place May 12. The goal is to help local food banks restock their pantries. 

The NALC, in conjunction with the US Postal Service, the AFL-CIO, UFCW, Valpak, and United Way of Okaloosa and Walton Counties, May 12 will be collecting non-perishable and non-expired food items to include quick meals like macaroni, spaghetti, soups, canned meats, peanut butter, canned juice, canned fruits, canned vegetables, baby food and cereal.

To participate, place food donations in a bag next to the mailbox early the morning of May 12. The letter carrier will pick up the donations as they make their regular mail routes and then deliver them to local food banks.
