A food drive that will be primarily supported on social media in Memphis hopes to replenish stock at the Mid-South Food Bank for the spring
The Mid-South Food Bank will host its second annual Good Friday Food Drive online on Friday, March 29.
This year’s food drive will rely on social media to spread the word and encourage support by using the hashtag #memfood. With social media, the Food Bank, along with Good Friday Food Drive’s official sponsors Easy Way Produce and First State Bank, will initiate a call-to-action to followers via Twitter.
“Mid-South Food Bank encourages everyone to get involved,” said Mid-South Food Bank Communications Director Marcia Wells. “Community food drives are an important source of food and funds to purchase food.”
Last year, the food bank received over $3,000 in donations online – the equivalent of 9,000 meals.
On Friday participants can donate at midsouthfoodbank.org. Also, donations can be made in person at the following locations:
