Hundreds of bags of food given away

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On Wednesday morning, former City of Jackson Councilman Frank Bluntson hosted the 34th annual "Craig Bluntson Senior Citizen Food Drive," at the Brooks W. Stewart VFW Post in Jackson.

650 bags filled with five pounds of food were handed out to seniors. Each give away also included a frozen hen. 

The City of Jackson and dozens of volunteers purchased the groceries for the seniors.  

The food drive is named after Bluntson's son Craig who died of a massive heart attack when he was thirty-three years old.
