Senior Food Assistance in Northeast Louisiana

Despite a career dedicated to being an important part of kids’ lives, Sherman has had trouble affording an important part of his life: food.

That’s because his low fixed income often isn’t enough for him and his wife to afford the food they need. To help make ends meet, they visit a food pantry that receives food from the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana, a member of the Feeding America network.

“We’d be hungry if it wasn’t for this food,” Sherman said. “We appreciate it very much.”
