Food assistance resources available to members of Mississippi State family

The MSU Food Security Network has partnered with the Student Association's Block by Block meal program to connect members of the Mississippi State community who lack food to available food resources. While the network connects students, faculty and staff to a local food pantry, Block by Block provides block meals specifically for students in need.

Anyone who feels they are in need of food assistance should contact Shayla Jefferson at 662-325-1820 or

In addition, local food pantries have numerous volunteer opportunities available to students, faculty and staff. Individuals looking to volunteer at a local pantry can contact the network for more details, or sign up for the Maroon Volunteer Center newsletter at
