Our mission began in 2010 with the launch of our organization. For the last two decades, the 128 Project has served people across the country and around the world by providing food, educational materials, and other services. Now, the organization primarily focuses on helping with the needs of those in South Mississippi and South Alabama. Our founder, Dr. Reid Guy, grew up in South Mississippi, and he and his family have spent significant time there and South Alabama, so both places are important to them.
While leading a church in Mobile, Reid and his wife Lori, along with their church, began to really discover the deep food insecurity across their region and the need for programs that help with peoples everyday struggles. So now, 128 Project has a renewed and intentional focus of changing the statistics of food insecurity across South Mississippi and South Alabama.
The 128 Project is a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization.
