A non-profit group is getting some much needed help. The Ronald McDonald House in Jackson got a big gift Monday. Representatives from ‘Mississippi Farm Bureau Insurance Agency’ donated food to the non-profit. The company is celebrating its “National Food Checkout” week. The food will be used for families staying at the house with sick kids who are getting treatments. Organizers say the gift is one way for families to eat healthy on a tight budget. On Tuesday, the insurance agency will set up educational booths at the state capitol informing the public about making healthy choices. It will be held from 9am until 11am.
