Help Stomp Out Hunger - local food drive Friday and Saturday

Collection points at Brookshires & Walmart in Center 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Shelby County Outreach Ministries is having special dropoff locations at Brookshires and Walmart from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22.


In celebration of Hunger Awareness Month, Shelby County Outreach Ministries will have a Canned Food Drive from June 10th thru June 14th, according to Josh Crawford with the organization.

Donations may be dropped off at Shelby County Outreach Ministries between 9-2 M-F. 

Statistics say that 21.3% of people in Shelby County live in a food insecure home.  This means that we have people in our community that are hungry and not sure where their next meal will come from. 

On June 21st and 22nd donations can be made at Brookshire Brothers and Wal-Mart.  Help us “Stomp Out Hunger” by donating canned foods, non-perishable food items, or monetary donations!  Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. 

Suggested items for food pantry:

• Canned corn

• Canned green beans


• Spaghetti sauce

•Peanut butter

• Canned meat

• Canned soup

• Other misx. canned fruit or veggies
