CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Local post offices gathered nearly three tons of food on May 10 as part of the national Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

Mark Lucas, who coordinated on behalf of the Cambridge Post Office, told AVC News that many community members contributed to the food drive's success:

Since 1992, the NALC has gathered more that one billion pounds of food as part of the annual national food drive.
