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 devastated.
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 them. They pulled the large Southern AgCredit grill to Rolling Fork and cooked hamburgers, hot dogs, or chicken with side items and cold drinks.
This relief effort went on for 11 days, and the team served approximately 2,750 hot meals 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.
