For families in the WMC viewing area, the need for food is so much greater this year because of the pandemic. The Mid-South Food Bank is giving out 6 million pounds of food each month.

That’s three times more than in a normal year.

So your donation, no matter how big or small, matters.

”Well this money will go right out the door to provide meals for folks who need it right now. This is going to provide over 300-thousand meals,” said Cathy Pope, Mid-South Food Bank CEO.
