VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

It is time to "Stamp Out Hunger" with Second of Harvest of South Georgia.

Stamp Out Hunger is the largest one-day food drive in the nation and Second Harvest needs your help in raising food for the cause.

All you have to do is fill up a blue bags you got in the mail with food. Then, sit it outside your door for a mail carrier or volunteer to pick up on Saturday.

"There will be tens of thousands of people affected by the proceeds of this food drive, which is great because our area has some of the largest rates of food insecurity in the nation," said Director Eliza McCall.

Second Harvest has hosted the drive for 26 years. Officials suggest buying non-perishable items like canned goods, soup and peanut butter. They also encourage you stay away from items in glass containers because it can break.

Stamp Out Hunger hopes to give 150,000 meals to people in South Georgia.
