Community members are being asked to bring a bag of food out to their mailboxes Saturday.

To participate in the National Association of Letter Carriers "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive, citizens put non-perishable food items into a plastic bag and leave the bag by their mailboxes for a post office carrier or program volunteer to pick up.

"The whole idea is to make it as easy as possible for folks to participate," said Lisa Brown, SERVE, Inc., executive director.
