Why Heights for Hunger

Right now, there are more than 320,000 people living in the Mid-South who may not know when or where they’ll eat their next meal. Out of those thousands, more than 107,000 are children. By rappelling down, you’ll help raise up thousands of people living food-insecure in our community. Are you willing to go to great Heights for Hunger?

Volunteer for this amazing event and watch as participants help us fight hunger in our community by going Over the Edge for Mid-South Food Bank. We have multiple opportunities available.
