Mid-South Food Bank is a valuable organization in our community. This area was recently named the "Hunger Capital of the Nation", according to a recent poll conducted by the Gallup Organization for the Food Resources Action Center. Mid-South Food Bank distributes food and other groceries to food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other agencies that feed hungry people. They operate efficiently and are very good stewards of the donations they receive.
