Move On Up, Mississippi wants no Lafayette County child to go hungry. We want no Lafayette County family to go without food.

“In this time of uncertainty and fear, we want to help,” says founder, John Currence. “We were established to help children in need. We have the financial ability to do so, and our board immediately rushed to make sure we were part of a response. I’m glad we are in a position to help, if need be.”
