Food Drive Under Way

Star Staff Reports

Mid-South Food BankShelby County Government has teamed up with the Mid-South Food Bank to help reduce hunger in Shelby County.
A food donation campaign is underway at Shelby County fire stations through June 30.
“I’m happy Shelby County employees want to once again participate in the effort to help those facing hunger.  I especially appreciate Chief Alvin Benson and his staff at the Shelby County Fire Department who will coordinate the collection sites,” said Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.
Shelby County Government has supported the Feed the Need program since 1996. Last year, the County collected canned goods, other food products and more than $4,000 for the food bank.
“We’ll receive non-perishable food donations Monday thru Friday, from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.  We encourage citizens to stop by their neighborhood Shelby County fire station and join us in our efforts to assist the food bank,” said Chief Benson.
Officials at the Mid-South Food Bank estimate hunger affects more than 400,000 Shelby County residents.
