 We are planning an EPIC Sweet Potato Crop Drop at The Gathering and we need your group to make it a success! 

Farmers have surpluses of sweet potatoes that are good to eat but, don't quite make the cut for cosmetic standards. These sweet potatoes are donated so that you can help sort through them and assemble 10lb. Family-Sized Bags for families in need across Mississippi. At the end of the event, food pantries and agencies from all over the state will be coming to pick up their bags of sweet potatoes for the families they serve in their communities.

We need your help to break the record for most sweet potatoes bagged in one event in Mississippi! Sign up and be prepared to help feed families in need in just 2 hours. You can help feed more than 300 families in need for an entire month with this one volunteer experience. Can you spare 120 minutes to help more than 1,200 people?
