Feeding the Gulf Coast and Wells Fargo helping Biloxi residents

The Wells Fargo Bank on Howard Avenue in Biloxi had cars lined around the block and they weren’t there for the ATM.

Feeding the Gulf Coast and Wells Fargo hosted a food distribution, giving away foods to families struggling during the pandemic. The food drive had bags of fresh produce, proteins, and dry goods.

The goal of these food drives is to provide meals to families suffering financially from the pandemic.

Both partners are optimistic about teaming up to give back to those in need. Feeding the Gulf Coast Relation Coordinator Karisma Slusher said, “It feels great especially during this COVID with everything going on. Some people can’t even get out of their house, some people are picking up for grandparents or neighbors and it’s nice to be able to get them something to cook.”

Mike Ryan with Wells Fargo Mississippi said, “We hear stories of the impact of COVID across our Coast, in our state, and really across the nation. So, to lend a small token, use our parking lot and partner with them and continue to let them impact the community with us and our team members here. It feels fantastic.”

This food distribution was the last one at this location in Biloxi.

At each distribution, 250 families can pick up food if they are pre-registered. Although if you show up they will put you in a waiting line for what’s left over.

There will be three more food distributions starting next Saturday in Pascagoula.
