While being a distributor for both of these agencies, Heartland Hands, Inc. is most gratefull to be associated with local North Mississippi food distributors such as Kroger, Walmart, Superlow, Big Lots, Pizza Huts, Panera Bread, Shipleys, Associated Wholesale Grociers and Pepperidge Farms. We are also grateful to Desoto County Schools and along with other local businesses who so generously support our efforts to feed Mississippi residents.
