NORTHERN UTAH -- Mail carriers canvassed the state Saturday to help the Utah Food Bank.

Carrier Ian Cameron explained the Stamp Out Hunger program: "It's the carriers going around, picking up food that's left on front porches."

Earlier in the week, the postal service put plastic bags in people's mailboxes so they could fill them with donated food.

Cameron said he noticed far more food this year than in years past. "I have to stop every few houses to unload and make small piles on the curb so I can go back and pick it up," he said.
