Letter carriers across the country pulled double duty Saturday. They delivered mail and collected food items for the 22nd Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
Preliminary results show a total of 270,831 pounds of food were collected and residents in Wilmington donated 76,608 pounds of that food.
This food will go towards helping more than 560,000 individuals in the Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC's service area keep meals on the table.
Final results in 2013 show more than 625,000 pounds of food were donated; 212,000 pounds of that food was from the Wilmington area.
