Southern AgCredit Provides Meals in Tornado-Stricken Rolling Fork, Mississippi

On Friday, March 24, 2023, tornadoes ripped through a small farming community in the Mississippi delta. Rolling Fork, a town in our servicing territory, was shattered.

Saturday morning the team at Southern AgCredit began making plans to provide relief to those affected by the deadly storms. They planned to provide hot meals to locals, first responders, or whoever needed it. The plan consisted of the large Southern AgCredit grill being pulled to Rolling Fork and grilling hamburgers, hotdogs, or chicken with side items and cold drinks.

This relief effort went on for 11 days in Rolling Fork and approximately 2,750 hot meals were served to those who needed them.

Southern AgCredit would like to thank Bobbie and Angie Casavechia, Tripp Cain with Taylor Rental and First South Farm Credit for helping in this relief effort.
