NETTLETON, Miss (WTVA) -- As millions of Americans are working to stay healthy amid the coronavirus pandemic, many are heading to grocery stores to stay stocked up on food.
But there are a lot of Mississippians that rely on food pantries to help them out.
The Nettleton Faith Food Pantry is looking for volunteers right now to help those in need.
Organizers say this situation is unlike any they have seen before, which is why they need the community to help.
"We are a hundred percent volunteer agency and most of our volunteers are retired people. They are older. A lot of them have health issues or family had health issues and when COVID came along, they had to quit so we are short of help right now," Jim Long, Nettleton Faith Pantry, said.
