Several Mayors Across Mississippi Gathering Food For Local Food Pantry

Morgan Howard

Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba is joining seven fellow mayors across the metro Jackson area to raise food items for the Mississippi food pantry Extra Table.
Each mayor is assigned a different food to collect from their city. Jackson Mayor Lumumba was given tuna to collect from residents in Jackson.
The Jackson Mayor is asking residents to donate cans of tuna to several locations across Jackson.
Since Jackson is the largest city to participate in the food collection drive, Mayor Lumumba said he is optimistic residents will outgive other cities.
The food drive is now underway and will extend to Friday, March 24.
Tuna can be dropped off at the following locations:
  • Corner Market, 1220 E. Northside Drive
  • Corner Market, 904 E. Fortification St.
  • Corner Market, 653 Duling Ave.
  • Kroger – 4910 Interstate 55 North
  • JPD Precinct 4 – 4940 Old Canton Rd.
  • JFD Fire Station 20 – 4445 Medgar Evers Blvd.
  • Fire Station 23 – 2640 Raymond Rd.
