Help fight hunger this holiday season

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The folks from the Mississippi Food Network need your help to keep their shelves stocked this holiday season. Donations are needed all year long, but there's an extra push for donations during the holidays.

According to the food network more than 1 in 4 children and more than half of seniors in Mississippi don't have enough food to eat.

"There's 600,000 people in the state who are hungry and or food insecure. The USDA tells us that if you don't know where your next meal is coming from you're food insecure and we have a lot of people who fit that category in the state of Mississippi," says Charles Beady, the CEO of the Mississippi Food Network.
