RiverKings visit Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association

SOUTHAVEN, Miss - The Mississippi RiverKings visited community partner, MIFA (Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association) on Monday, January 30 to pack meals for emergencies and deliver hot meals to area seniors. MIFA, founded in 1968, annually serves 50,000 people by uniting the community through service of seniors and families in crisis.

MIFA's "Meal on Wheels" program provides hot and ready meals for nutritionally at-risk seniors (age 60 and over) due to illness or disability in Shelby County. The organization's volunteer program served 409,442 meals to 3,204 seniors in 2016. Due to this process, 98 percent of clients eat healthier foods, 96 percent of clients believe the program helps them continue to live in their homes, and 90 percent of clients believe the program improves their overall health.

The Mississippi RiverKings will honor MIFA on Faith and Family Night on February 24th at the Landers Center. Tickets benefiting MIFA can be purchased at RiverKings.com/MIFA or by calling 662-253-0172.
