MLGW helps folks in need in Westwood with another mobile food pantry

The utility company and the Mid-South Food Bank started the pantry when the COVID-19 pandemic began.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — MLGW hosted its 7th mobile food pantry Thursday morning.

The utility company started the pantry when the COVID-19 pandemic began. This pantry served the Westwood community at Mount Vernon Baptist Church.

All residents had to do is drive-up and food was loaded into their vehicles. 

This food pantry is in partnership with the Mid-South Food Bank, which continues to help feed families that were affected by the pandemic.

"It really warms our hearts to be able to serve the community like this in a time like this. As far as you can see today cars are on all of the streets. So, that continues to tell us that the need in Memphis is tremendous and we want to do whatever we can to serve our customers,” said Beverly Perkins, MLGW Corporate Social Responsibility Supervisor. “In addition to food, we are also giving them information about utility and rental assistance and how to save on their utility bills and just a lot of good information."

No more than two households per vehicle were allowed.
