Help us provide meals for our community during this time of need.
The Delta is one of the most impoverished regions in the country, and in the midst of this coronavirus epidemic, one of our most pressing concerns is food insecurity. In the West Tallahatchie school district, 98% of students are on free and reduced lunch. With schools closed for the rest of the school year, we need your help to provide meals for these families in need.
We will use these funds to work with the Sumner Grille to cook and deliver meals to households in Tallahatchie County, prioritizing elderly residents and families with young children. The Sumner Grille is a woman-owned, black-owned business in Sumner, MS, that is being hit hard by the lack of tourism during this time.
This fundraiser is part of a matching program with GoFundMe and #GivingTuesdayNow. Everything we raise up to $1,000 will be matched, making your donation stretch twice as far and providing twice as many meals.
We kindly ask that you join us in supporting a local business and local families. Your gift will provide meals for Tallahatchie families and support a local black-owned restaurant during a time of need.
