VALPARAISO | The National Association of Letter Carriers 21st annual food drive is Saturday. Residents in Valparaiso are encouraged to leave nonperishable food items by their mailbox prior to normal mail delivery time for the letter carrier to pick up during their normal rounds.

All food collected by Valparaiso city and rural carriers go to food banks in the Valparaiso delivery area. This is the nation's largest single-day food drive. Last year, 70 million pounds of food was collected nationwide.
