This past weekend postal workers participated in the 'Stamp out Hunger' food drive, collecting tens of thousands of pounds of food for local food pantries.
All that food is now on those pantry shelves, ready to be distributed to hungry families.
One example is the pantry at Open Door Baptist Church in Marietta, which received more than 2,000 pounds of food from the postal service.
Like many food pantries, it runs solely on donations. Church members say this particular donation couldn't have come at a better time.
"The shelves were getting pretty bare and we didn't know what we were going to do come Wednesday, and then God provided the postal service," Candy Waite, a church member, said.
"I wish they (the postal workers) could come and spend a Wednesday here and see the smiles on the faces and the blessings that we see every Wednesday," Pastor Keith Kapple said.
The 'Stamp out Hunger' food drive is a nation-wide event, helping food pantries all across America.
