Albany- Saturday marked the 12th anniversary of the Stamp Out the Hunger Program food drive.

People just put a bag of non-perishable food outside next to their mailboxes and the nations 240,000 letter carriers picked them up.

"I know there are a lot of needy families that depend on this and when the food bank gets low it's really an emergency," says food donor, Marcilla Youngblood.

Postal carriers collected food in more than 10,000 cities nationwide and will deliver the food to food banks in their communities.
