The Food Bank of Central Louisiana

It is with the generous support of our individual and corporate donors that the Food Bank of Central Louisiana is able to serve more than 22,400 people every month in our community.
For every dollar donated, the Food Bank of Central Louisiana can provide five meals to families in need. In 2009, we distributed over 5.7 million pounds of food to children, families, and seniors in need of emergency food assistance. Each year, the Feeding America network of food banks and food-rescue organizations distributes more than 2 billion pounds of food and grocery products to support feeding programs at approximately 50,000 local charitable agencies, including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after-school programs and Kids Cafes.
