Your Support Helps Feed Families in East Carroll Parish
Gertrude visits one of the Food Bank’s local pantries in East Carroll Parish each month. She says she’s been able to balance her fixed income to pay her utility bills on time because of it.
“It saves me money,” she said. “It allows me to focus on my bills.” Gertrude uses the groceries like fresh dairy, produce, and proteins that she receives from the Food Bank to cook nutritious meals for her and her family.
“We have small children to feed, and this is a big help,” she said
