MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Saturday volunteers packed the Mid-South Food Bank to prepare emergency food boxes for those families who need it.
Volunteers packed about 500 boxes that will go out to the mobile pantries next week.
Mid-South Food Bank CEO Cathy Pope says donations are needed, and $1 provides three meals for families in the community.
"We've been working with Shelby County Schools to make sure that we are serving those neighborhoods where the children are, we won't be at every site that Shelby County Schools is serving but we are mapping those neighborhoods and getting additional food out there," said Pope.
The Mid-South Food Bank is also hosting a diaper bank next week.
