RiverKings Offer Helping Hand at HeartLand Hands Food Pantry

SOUTHAVEN, Miss – The RiverKings stopped by HeartLand Hands this morning to assist in removing donated food off a tractor trailer. Every Thursday morning, HeartLand Hands Food Pantry on Stateline Road receives an 18-wheeler worth of food donated from local grocery stores and vendors.

Representatives from the RiverKings arrived at HeartLand hands to offer assistance on the busiest day of the week for the Food Pantry and began sorting through donated meats, juices, dairy products, and snacks. 

For over a decade, HeartLand Hands Food Pantry has dedicated their time to helping those below the poverty line in Horn Lake and Southaven. Thanks to local donations from grocery stores and various vendors they have a great influx of donated food and goods, but  HeartLand Hands are in desperate need of volunteers. In 2016 HeartLand Hands moved 8.6 million dollars worth of donated food to those in need in Horn Lake and Southaven as well as donated excess items to other local causes such as prison reform programs, homeless shelters, and abuse shelters. Moving that amount of food requires a healthy workforce which has come in short supply.  Those interested in volunteering with HeartLand Hands are encouraged to stop by the pantry at 385 Stateline Rd, Southaven MS on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 1pm.
