Charity Feeds Needy Coast Families During Covid-19 Pandemic

Charity Feeds Needy Coast Families During Covid-19 Pandemic

The Coronavirus pandemic has affected families across the world, including on the gulf coast. Many nonprofits are stepping up to the plate, to help fill in the gaps as some families struggle to put food on the plates of their kids.

Right now, there’s even more need for such help — and of course, there’s more need for volunteers and donations.

One charity currently serving southern Mississippi families — along with families in other parts of the gulf south — is the nonprofit Feeding the Gulf Coast. 

This charity — a member of Feeding America — has been partnering with churches and other nonprofit organizations in the coastal counties to provide meals for those who might otherwise go without.

A few examples of the group’s work during the Covid-19 pandemic include food distribution to the needy through Triumph Church in Gulfport, through the Abundant Life Evangelistic Center in Biloxi, and via the Kroc Center in Biloxi.

According to the group’s website, serving local families depends upon donations of time and funds from those who are able to help. Feeding the Gulf Coast predicts it may need to provide up to an ADDITIONAL 5.4 million meals due to the Covid-19 situation.
