TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – The Family Resource Center of North Mississippi canceled its food giveaway Wednesday.
Notice found on the Family Resource Center’s website, frcnms.org, on Oct. 14, 2020.
The Mid-South Food Bank, which is in Memphis, Tennessee, is low on food, Christi Webb said.
Webb is the executive director of the Family Resource Center.
Many vehicles waited Wednesday to pick up food.
However, workers had to turn many families away when the Resource Center ran empty of supplies.
“Had 200 cars at least that last week that did not get boxes because we were out of food,” Webb said.
Turning away families is hard, Webb said. And her staff were heartbroken when they heard the bad news.
The Center has a small food pantry, and the Center will also accept donations.
Webb should know more Thursday about any more funding for food boxes.
