Tupelo, Miss. (WTVA) - Many food pantries in the area are working hard during the Coronavirus Pandemic to help people who are going without food.
Workers at the Salvation Army’s Food Pantry are prepping for an influx of people. The Salvation Army made operational changes in the wake of the pandemic.
One of the biggest changes is the way workers run the food pantry. Workers will now run the food out to the car eliminating close contact.
Major Ray Morton of the Salvation Army said he expects a surge in people coming in within the next few weeks.
He estimates about 100 to 150 extra people will show up a day. Major Morton is urging people to call before they show up to the food pantry.
He said you can also message the organization on Facebook.
