MERIDIAN, Idaho — The Idaho Foodbank is preparing for the nation's largest food drive. Stamp Out Hunger is organized by the National Association of Letters Carriers (NALC) and takes place on May 11.

Here's how it works, residents fill any bad with non-perishable foods and place them next to their mailboxes during the event. Letter carriers will pick up the donations along their routes across the Treasure Valley and donate them to the Idaho Foodbank to help those in need around the state.

Members of the NALC have dyed their hair blue at the Undone Salon in Boise to raise awareness for the event.

Some of the food items most needed at the drive are whole grain pasta, cereal, low sodium canned vegetables, canned fruit, juices, and dry or canned beans. Easy to open items, such as foods with pop-top lids, are also helpful.
