Help us support the Mid-South Food Bank with the 2021 Holiday Food Drive
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The 2021 Holiday Food Drive benefiting the Mid-South Food Bank is underway!
For 14 years, Action News 5′s Holiday Food Drive has collected millions of pounds of food for the Mid-South Food Bank, providing food to families in need during winter months.
The need was unprecedented through nearly two years of the COVID-19 pandemic. In just 12 months during the pandemic, the food bank distributed 55 million pounds of food.
This year, we’re asking you to help us support the Mid-South Food Bank’s mission again where EVERY donation goes to help a family in need.
For $10, you can provide 30 meals.
The food bank is asking for online donations as the food drive remains virtual this year.
“Last year was such a success even though it’s not in person,” said Cathy Pope, president and CEO of the Mid-South Food Bank. “We know we love all that in person stuff. And that’s a fun time for us. But it was really successful. Last year we raised over $100,000.”
Go to https://www.midsouthfoodbank.org/holidayfooddrive to donate now through Nov. 30. You can also make food donations at area Paragon Bank locations.
