Although the Mardi Gras season looks different on the coast this year, Extra Table is choosing to celebrate the holiday in a meaningful way by feeding our hungry neighbors through a new and social-distanced partnership of coastal cities, the March of the Mayors, an informed and educated answer to a canned food drive.

The March of the Mayors is a 4-week-long event driven by donations of specific food items that will benefit Extra Table’s seven partner pantries across the Gulf Coast. Each participating city is collecting one specific item that will be dropped off at different locations (listed below), with a final outdoor box packing to take place at Lyman Community Center (13472 US 49, Gulfport). Extra Table will distribute the boxes to our coastal pantry partners, who will then distribute the food throughout the community.

GET INVOLVED!

If you live in one of these coastal counties, make sure you get involved by DONATING or VOLUNTEERING! Don’t live in a coastal county? Click one of the options above to sponsor a box of food OR feed a family of 4!! When you donate to Extra Table, 100% of your donation goes straight toward food purchasing and $1 donated provides 5.9 healthy meals to Mississippians!
