The Petal Children’s Task Force offers food assistance to less fortunate families within the Petal School District.



Monthly food assistance:  Once proof of residence and a photo ID have been shown, the family receives a box that contains meat and dry goods.  This box is given every 30 days. "Extras”: Clients may come in once a week for any produce and/or bread that we have at that time.

For those in need of school uniforms, contact Petal First Baptist Church. (Phone: 601-545-3198/Email:

Thanksgiving and Christmas assistance are provided as special services for our clients, with separate sign up forms.  The dates for sign up are announced in the Fall.

The Petal Children’s Task Force is an emergency food bank.  We ask that clients only come when truly in need.  All applicants are welcome, but our resources are limited. Click the helping hand for an application.
