Feeding the Gulf Coast provides food to local families

Community members came together Saturday morning as volunteers to provide those who need food during this time with critical resources.

Feeding the Gulf Coast teamed up with Mississippi Public Health Institute and other local organizations to feed community members in the Gulf Coast area.

Volunteers loaded boxes of fresh produce and dry goods into vehicles Saturday morning at First Baptist Church and over 500 families received food as a result of the drive.

Feeding the Gulf Coast leaders say this event provides a critical need for many members of the community. VP of Development and Marketing Cyndy Baggett said, “Really we want to be able to provide for those families who are in need during this time to just put some good, healthy food on their tables to help them get through a little while.”

Feeding the Gulf Coast CEO Dan Emery said, “We’re in this for the long haul and we’re committed to southern Mississippi. You’ll see a lot more of us in this area.”
