The bad economy has even hit the Mississippi Food Network. For the first time in its history, the 25-year-old food bank won't be able to buy turkeys and distribute them to thousands of needy Mississippi residents at Thanksgiving.

The bank supplies more than 300 churches and nonprofits in the state. Executive Director Walker Satterwhite told the Clarion-Ledger that the problem is the economic downturn that has caused turkey prices to soar and charitable donations to sink.
