MISSION: Why We Ride
Extra Table is a non-profit organization with a mission to supply healthy food in bulk from our partner Sysco to Mississippi food pantries and soup kitchens so that our hungry neighbors can have nutritious, shelf-stable meals.
Simply put...Food pantries and soup kitchens are organizations who feed people. Extra Table supplies 32 food pantries and soup kitchens across 29 counties with food. We ride to raise funds for fellow Mississippians with limited access to food. Extra Table will direct all proceeds from The Witches Ride to food pantries and soup kitchens in the Jackson Metro Area.
