TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- If you have any spare cans of veggies or fruits, there may be someway to get them taken off your hands.

The 2019 National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger food drive will happen this coming Saturday.

The NALC has partnered with Food Finders Food bank to help bridge the gap in food donations.

Those wishing to participate need to leave non-perishable food items either near or inside their mailbox, and the letter carrier for the area will pick up the food and have it delivered to Food Finders.

Jeremy Swift will be one of the letter carriers picking up food.

“It's so rewarding,” said Swift. “Anyone who's never volunteered, it's a feeling unlike any other to help someone without expecting anything in return.”

This is the 25th year the Greater Lafayette area will host the event.

For more about how to volunteer visit the websites of either the United Way or Food Finders.
