Donate At Saturday's Game
Nov. 7, 2013
OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss and Kroger, in conjunction with the Mid-South Food Bank and the Mississippi Food Network, will be on hand during Saturday’s football game versus Arkansas to collect non-perishable food items or monetary donations to fight hunger in the area as part of the Million Meals Challenge.
Fans are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or a cash donation to the game. Every dollar raised supplies enough resources to feed eight people. Volunteers will be collecting donations at each main entry point of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Ole Miss and Kroger, in a collaborative effort with Memphis and Mississippi State, aims to provide one million meals for people in Mississippi and Western Tennessee fueled by significant involvement on and off campus, as well as through on-site collections at Kroger stores in Oxford, Starkville, and select locations in Memphis.
Mid-South Food Bank collects and distributes food to a network of more than 300 charitable feeding programs in west Tennessee, north Mississippi and east Arkansas. In 2011, Mid-South Food Bank distributed 10.3 million pounds of wholesome food and other grocery items to food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, youth programs, senior programs, rehabilitation and residential centers, daycares and schools.

Jackson-based Mississippi Food Network is the only food bank located in the state and serves more than 415 member agencies. More than 175,000 people are served and more than 1.5 million pounds of food distributed each month. For more information, visit www.msfoodnet.org.
