This Saturday, when your postal carrier delivers your mail, he or she will be hoping to get something from you in return: a bag full of food for families in need.

The National Association of Letter Carriers is partnering with the Postal Service for their annual Stamp Out Hunger drive.

Their goal is to collect 200,000 pounds of non-perishables for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.

On Monday, they held a rally to help get the word out to Michiana residents.

"The most important thing to remember is you can live without a lot of things, but food isn't one of them," said Kevin Strebinger, food drive organizer. "In the state of Indiana, we have one in four children who are food insecure. They don't know where their next meal is coming from."

Organizers stress that one bag -- or even one can -- will make a difference.

To help out, all you have to do is leave the items in a bag right by your mailbox, before your letter carrier comes on Saturday.
