PARSONS, KS. --- The City of Parsons was recently notified that the Balloons, Bikes, Blues and Barbeque event in October has been selected as one of several sites to participate in the Kansas City Barbeque Society's "100,000 Meals Mission". It's a project to help feed the homeless and hungry throughout America.

The Kansas City group will give extra meat to the Parsons teams to grill. The meat will then be given to area shelters.

The groups says one in five children in the United States live below the poverty line and they hope this extra food will help those in need.
