AARP South Dakota's Cathy McLeer says for about 5 percent of older South Dakotans, food insecurity is a problem.

To be part of the food drive, put canned goods in a Stamp Out Hunger hunger sack and leave it near your mailbox today.

Last year, the U.S. Postal Service picked up more than 74 million pounds of food nationwide.
