The Lauderdale County Be More grant was recently able to partner with the Bags of Hope food pantry at the Ripley First United Methodist Church on June 27, 2017. 314 families were given groceries and fresh produce. Our Ripley Be More garden distributed some of our produce such as: squash, zucchini, potatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and onions. SNAP ED also gave several recipes with the produce they were given. The community of Lauderdale County was able to come together and make this project a huge success. Bags of Hope is the last Tuesday of the month and has been in operation for several years now.
