“Hop on your bike or brook and let’s help restock Stewpot for the holiday season,” said Chesney Doyle, a member of the alliance.

Stewpot organized issued a call for help via social media on Tuesday, with supporters posting photos of nearly bare shelves and making a call for donations, particularly of canned vegetables such as green beans, corn, red beans, carrots and potatoes.

The Stewpot, at 69 E. Franklin, serves 300 meals a day to people in the Natchez-Adams County community.
