Extra Table is raising needed funds to continue and sustain its feeding programs throughout the state. With Mississippi being the most food insecure state in the United States, with 1 in 5 Mississippians unsure if they can afford their next meal, Extra Table has lots of funds to secure in order to continue its 14-year tradition of providing healthy meals to pantries on a monthly basis.

Merry Mississippi, an online auction of the 10 most unique Mississippi items and experiences, kicks off THIS TUESDAY and runs for 10 consecutive days.

The Merry Mississippi online auction will begin this TUESDAY December 5 and will go on for 10 days. Every day one new item will be released at 6 a.m. and the auction for that item will close nightly at 8 p.m. with another item going up for sale again the following morning at 6 a.m.

“The holidays are such a busy time of year and all our shopping list are long so we have made this easy. At Extra Table, we have gathered the wildest, most amazing items and experiences all reflective of the talent, nature and history that define our great state,” stated Martha Allen, Extra Table’s executive director. “We have put a price tag on these items just for you with our goal being to raise needed funds so that we can continue providing food to our hungry neighbors right here in Mississippi.”
