Food insecurity has risen drastically due to the coronavirus pandemic.

One Mississippi based non-profit is coming to the Delta to host a fundraiser, aimed on raising money to provide healthy and nutritious foods to food pantries across the Delta.

I spoke with Extra Table's Martha Allen about how this non-profit is finding the food it needs to feed those who desperately need it.

The fundraiser is Friday, October 30th from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Delta Arts Alliance in Cleveland. The drive thru event will have CDC guidelines in place.
