Saturday was a day for many people to take time out of their lives to focus on others for the Stamp Out Hunger effort.

The food drive took over the U.S. Postal Service in Albuquerque. 

"This is the best thing in the world, I mean, this is a feel good moment," one volunteer said.

Every year, the postal service joins up with the Roadrunner Food Bank and the Campbell Soup Company to collect food. The postal carriers pick up boxes and bags of food that people leave by their mailboxes.

The food collected today will go to the Roadrunner Food Bank. Last year, the effort raised just under 195,000 pounds of food in the Albuquerque area.
