Ole Miss Adopt-A-Basket Program

As Ole Miss students count down the days to vacation and a feast of turkey, other families are wondering how they will be able to put food on the table. That is where the Adopt-A-Basket program comes in. Ole Miss students and faculty come together to collect and package boxes of food for needy families living around the Oxford-Lafayette area.
This is the sixth year that the program has taken place. Hundreds of families have received food through adopt-a-basket,however, with the economy being so bad, even more families are in need of a helping hand. That is why this year, there was a goal of 500 hundred boxes of food. The office of the Dean of Students/Volunteer Services sponsors the event and has all of the important information.
