HeartLand Hands, Inc. is committed to strengthening our community by providing food assistance to residents of North Mississippi. Our administrative cost are less than 1/2 of 1% because we are staffed exclusively by volunteers. No one in our organization receives a salary. Instead, An average of 47 volunteers per day donated over 250,000 hours in 2018. No cost that we incur is ever passed to the client. In 2018 we had served 5,961 families where grocery baskets full of food are distributed to each family.
We provide food support to Families, Working Poor, Senior Citizens, Disaster Victims, Disabled, Homeless and the Newly Unemployed.
In order to provide this support we have an interview process that not only determines whether clients are truly in need, but also allows us to refer them to job agencies and other organizations in an effort to “help them help themselves.”
