The Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association (MIFA) is in the running to win a grant for its Meals on Wheels program, but the nonprofit needs your help to win.
According to MIFA, Memphis was declared the hunger capital of the country in 2011.
The Meals on Wheels program delivers 1,800 hot lunches each day to seniors in the community who are unable to leave their homes.
Now, MIFA is one of several nonprofits competing for a grant from FedEx.
To celebrate its 40th anniversary, FedEx is sponsoring a Global Month of Service. The shipping giant is encouraging its own team members to team up with nonprofits to make a difference in their communities.
The "Friends of the MIFA Maniacs" are hoping for your votes in order to give the Meals on Wheels program a boost so it can make an even bigger impact on the Memphis community.
