The gift from KLLM Transport Services is expected to double the Mississippi Food Network’s capacity to deliver donated food and household items to more than 300 agencies and food banks across the state. The food is then delivered to needy Mississippians.
KLLM is one of the largest transportation companies in the Southeast. Officials say the refrigerated trailer can haul up to 45,000 pounds.
In 2005, the Mississippi Food Network delivered more than 16 million pounds of food. The network was established in 1993.
