100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Letter Carrier Food Drive on Saturday

Your postal carriers are collecting food on Saturday.

Posted By on Thu, May 12, 2011 at 8:40 PM

I just opened my mail box to find a plastic bag. At first, I thought someone had place a piece of trash in my box, but then I remember that this Saturday is the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

All you have to do is take the bag you've been provided (really, any bag will work) and fill it with non-perishable food items. Then, place the bag near your mail box on Saturday morning and your carrier will gladly pick it up on his or her route. The food will be provided to local food banks and shelters.

If you don't get your food out in time, you can drop it off at any post office.

Stamp Out Hunger, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers, collected more than 77 million pounds of food last year. They're hoping to beat that number this year, so jump on it!
