Two non-profit foodbanks in Vicksburg will receive grant funds from Molina Healthcare of Mississippi.

Molina is donating $26,000 to a dozen non-profit foodbanks across Mississippi including River City Mission Food Pantry and Storehouse Community Food Bank in Vicksburg.

The donations are an effort to assist the many people and families affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus, allowing the organizations to stock up with needed resources for low-income residents.

“We value the relationships with our community partners year-round, and it is a blessing to be able to collaborate and serve our neighbors when they need it the most,” said Bridget Galatas, plan president of Molina Healthcare of Mississippi, in a statement. “We are grateful for the opportunity to join forces with these nonprofit organizations to support our members and our communities during this challenging time of uncertainty.”

In addition to the two foodbanks in Vicksburg, the following organizations will receive funds from the grant:

  • Aberdeen Loaves & Fishes
  • Brookhaven Outreach Ministries
  • Feeding by Faith (Meridian)
  • Grenada Food Pantry
  • Heartland Hands (Southaven)
