HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Edwards Street Fellowship Center is entering the time of the year where they are in their greatest need.

The food pantry gave away more than 185 tons of food to families last year and serves roughly 1,100 families a month.

Fall, specifically the months of August through December, are when they have their highest demand in serving multiple counties in the Pine Belt.

Food pantry officials say that any type of donation would help, including anything basic from canned fruit and vegetables as well as things like rice and pasta.
