VICKSBURG (WKZO) -- Thursday afternoon's Potluck Pals event continues a weeklong focus on helping eradicate hunger in the community.
Thursday's benefactor of Potluck Pals proceeds is Generous Hands, a Vicksburg-area effort to make sure young children are fed all weekend while they do not have access to school lunch programs.
"The backpacks are filled with a variety of nutritional foods," according to Sheri Lewis, director with Generous Hands.
She told WKZO the backpacks are innocuous and are assembled in time for children at-risk for unaddressed hunger over the weekend. The children are identified by school officials, and the program is carried out quietly, so as to not call specific attention to the kids who participate.
The Potluck Pals will return Friday, Nov. 30th, at Harding's Friendly Market located on 3750 West Centre Ave in Portage from 11am to 1pm. At Friday's event, Lori and the Potluck Pals will be announcing their first charity recipient of the "flash mob" drawing. Proceeds from the next day's sales will benefit the winning charity in a "flash mob" style turn out.
