  Food For Families


The holidays are fast approaching, and many families across Northeast Mississippi will need our help once again to keep fed.  In fact, Mississippi has the highest rate of people facing food insecurity in the U.S.  That means, the people in those homes might sometimes go without food because of a lack of money or other resources.  So, WTVA and its partners are stepping up once again.

Now through Friday, December 20, 2013.

WTVA and its sister station WLOV are teaming up with other local media and organizations to make this year’s food drive a success.   Of course, the MSU County Extension Offices are our biggest partners.  Because of their involvement in their counties and communities, we are able to serve 17 counties in our area better and restock the food pantries in their counties.  Each of these organizations and businesses will be collecting non-perishable canned goods throughout the drive.

The Mid-South Food Bank in Memphis and the Mississippi Food Network in Jackson will be collecting the food and distributing it to its food partners (members) in each county.  In other words, the food collected in a specific county stays in that county.

Last year, over 41,000 pounds of food was collected.  We hope to collect even more this year, but we need your help.  Please help us spread the word!
