In the spirit of Jesus Christ, whose directives compel us, Mission Okolona's purpose is to distribute available food to the needy in Okolona and surrounding communities.
Food Distribution: Food is distributed free of charge, thus improving the lives of needy individuals. We strive to provide supplemental food to children, pregnant women, new mothers, elderly people, the jobless, and those going thru a crisis. Mission Okolona receives food from a variety of nonprofit, private, and corporate donors.
During the COIVID-19 pandemic, Mission Okolona has had a greater demand for food assistance from needy families in our community, especially since we committed our pantry to also serve our regular clients as well as parents of students who were out of school due to the pandemic.
