Letter carriers across Dickson County and the United States will be picking up food donations Saturday in the 21st annual Stamp Out Hunger campaign. The largest one-day food drive in the country, local donations of canned and non-perishable food items will help stock the shelves of the food pantry at the Dickson County Help Center. Anyone wishing to make a donation should place a bag of items on or next to – but not inside – your mailbox Saturday in time for your carrier to pick it up. Help center Executive Director Renee Boehm has said the postal workers food drive is one of the largest single donations made every year. According to the US Department of Agriculture, about 15 percent of Tennesseans are considered “food insecure,” meaning having enough food to feed a family on a regular basis is not a given. Boehm reports that in April the help center’s food bank provided food to 391 families while a mobile food pantry provided donations to 189 families. The pantry has been reported to be running low on boxed dinners, peanut butter, hygiene products and other items. Donations also can be made Saturday at the help center, which will be open 9 am-5 pm.
