JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Metro-area mayors are joining together to make sure hungry families in the area have healthy meals to eat.

“March of the Mayors” kicks off Tuesday. This event is spearheaded by Extra Table.

The nonprofit is challenging mayors of surrounding communities to gather one specific food over the next four weeks.

Residents in Jackson, Ridgeland, Raymond, Pearl, Byram, and Canton are asked to donate the items at a designated drop off location.

Your city will determine which item you will be asked to donate. Some of those items include canned tuna, canned green beans, and peanut butter.
