As part of the 18th Annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ Food Drive, local postmen will pick-up any nonperishable food items left at mailboxes and make the first-class delivery to local food banks.

The annual food drive is a collaboration between United Way of Acadiana, the local post offices and Food Net.
