Fundraiser to support food insecurity in Henry County

PARIS, Tenn. — One organization is hosting a fundraiser to help feed those in need ahead of World Hunger Day on May 28.

The Little Pantries of Henry County is selling t-shirts to support the little pantries located throughout the county.

A press release states that data from Feeding America shows that almost 5,000 people in Henry County are classified as food insecure.

“This means there are hungry people, hungry families, and hungry children in our very own community that need our help,” said Pastor Emily Walker of the Little Pantries organization. “World Hunger Day is May 28th and we would love for people to wear their shirts that day in support of our little pantries and continue to wear their shirts after World Hunger Day to help create awareness. Caring about our neighbors is more than a short-term mission. It is a way of life.”

The shirts are available in a variety of colors, and feature the words “Hunger knows no season, Matthew 25:35” on the back.

To order a shirt, you can call the Trinity United Methodist Church as (731) 642-3427. In order for the shirts to be received by World Hunger Day, orders must be placed by May 14.
