The summer months are often a slow time for donations for local food banks. That's why the National Association of Letter Carriers and United States Postal Service are hosting a food drive in the Rochester area.

An announcement to encourage participation will be made Tuesday at the Webster Food Cupboard on Ridge Road starting at 9 a.m. The fundraiser runs through Saturday, June 7.

If you would like to donate, please leave non-perishable food items in a bag by your mailbox. The donated items will be given to Rochester-area food pantries and soup kitchens.
