The National Association of Letter Carriers is scheduled to hold its annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive on May 12. The event, in its 20th year, is the nation’s largest single-day food drive. To take part, leave a bag of nonperishable food items by your mailbox and your letter carrier will pick it up and take it to the Reading Food Pantry at the Old South United Methodist Church, 6 Salem St. Items needed include canned meats such as chicken, tuna, and Spam; bottled juice and juice boxes; canned fruit; canned vegetables, including potatoes, yams, beans, carrots, and spinach; condiments such as mayonnaise, ketchup, and canola oil; coffee; crackers; canned pasta; paper products, such as toilet paper and tissues; dish and laundry detergent; and personal care items, including shampoo, deodorant, and toothpaste.
