The Mid-South Food Bank has distributed a record-breaking 39.6 million pounds of food since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
About 43 percent of families in the Mid-South are food insecure and hungry because of the pandemic and its effects on the economy.
Since March, the Mid-South Food Bank's mobile pantries have served 465,000 households -- about 1.2 million people in 31 counties.
