As hunger continues to strike parts of Mississippi, the team at Extra Table has developed a new product called “Extra Full.”

Revealed by the statewide food bank on Wednesday in Jackson, Extra Full is a four-serving pot meal that can be on the table in less than a half hour just by boiling it for 30 minutes. All you need is water and a stovetop.

The first Extra Full meal will be red beans and rice using Two Brooks Farm rice grown in the Mississippi Delta. With a vitamin mix already included, the meal is high in fiber and protein, low in sodium, and has 22 vitamins and minerals.

The distribution of Extra Full meals will begin as soon as this week, according to a press release from the nonprofit.

“There is nothing like Extra Full in Mississippi. Volunteers will pack Extra Full meals, which will be distributed to Mississippi food pantries in addition to the food Extra Table currently ships monthly, at no cost to the pantries,” the release noted.

Currently, Extra Table stocks 62 food pantry and soup kitchen partners across the state for free. The newest addition to its menu was created through partnerships with the University of Southern Mississippi, Mississippi State University, Entergy, United Health, and Reed Foods.
