How Our Food Bank Works

Food is Donated or Purchased

Our food supply comes from a wide variety of sources, from small food drives to large corporate sponsors, local farms and federal nutrition programs.

Products are Sorted, Packaged, & Stored

All incoming food is carefully sorted, packed, and stored at our facility by a dedicated team of volunteers and warehouse staff.

Food is Supplied to Our Community Partners

We distribute the food among our non profit community partners who run soup kitchens, food pantries, and other feeding programs.

Food is Provided to Our Neighbors in Need

Groceries & meals are given to our neighbors in need throughout Northeast Louisiana through our programs and community partners.

Turnip Gleaning

Wasting Less,
Giving More

Every year in the United States, 119 billion pounds of food is wasted. Food waste happens at all stages from growing to retail to our homes.

Through innovative programs like our Grocery Rescue, we partner with growers, manufacturers and retailers to rescue good, safe, excess food that would otherwise go to waste, and share it with food-insecure families.

Empowering Neighbors, Building Resilience

Our Food Bank is committed to providing additional resources that reduce barriers to better health and promote food security. 

From SNAP application assistance to distributing senior food boxes, we aim to provide individuals and families with the extra support needed to live healthy, productive lives.
