* To help fight hunger, you need go no farther than your own mailbox Saturday as Campbell Soup and the National Association of Letter Carriers hold their 21st Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Place nonperishable items next to your home mailbox or slot before your mail carrier arrives. They'll get your donations to local people in need.

* Heck, to help fight hunger (an escalating battle that needs all the help it can get) you don't even have to pull yourself away from the computer. Philabundance, the Delaware Valley's largest hunger-relief organization, has a Virtual Food Drive tool that allows you to rally others to the cause, choose what kind of food you'd like to give and more. Start something at philabundance.org/VirtualFoodDrive.

* The Race for the Cure is a Mother's Day tradition, coming up Sunday. A local tradition addition is Classic Cake chef Robert Bennett's baking of a gigantic cake (actually a bunch of smaller ones combined) in the iconic, pink-ribbon shape of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation and its work against breast cancer. The vanilla-raspberry treat with pink fondant and sugary butterflies will be unveiled on the Art Museum steps at 8 a.m. Sunday. Walk/run participants will get a cake they can eat or exchange for a gift card to use at Classic Cake bakeries in Cherry Hill and Washington Township (classiccake.com).

* The words "fast," "drive-through" and "healthy, local sustainable ingredients" aren't usually combined to describe a restaurant, but they apply to Farmer's Road Drive Thru, new from Courtney Rozsas, owner of Lotus Farm to Table, in Media. Find it in a former KFC at 210 Wilmington Pike, in Painters Crossing Shopping Center. Hours are 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and until 2 p.m. Sunday. Seating inside and out. Lotus exec chef Ryan Sulikowski oversees the kitchen.
