We are very excited to announce the grand opening of the senior food pantry at @ebrcoa73! This morning, the clients were able to go through with a personal shopper and pick out the necessities. They were all so excited for the items they received! #brfoodbank #ebrcoa #fighthunger #batonrouge #seniorgroceryprogram #feedingamerica
Contributions are accepted in any amount, and can be donated directly to the food bank online here.
If you have time to spare this holiday season, consider using it to make a difference in the community. You or your team can sign up to volunteer at the food bank here.
Host a food drive
Hosting a food drive at your office or business is easier than you’d think. The food bank does an excellent job of guiding you through the process. Start online here by registering your food drive, and the food bank will be in touch quickly about helping you retrieve your bins, providing ideas for building excitement, and organizing how you’ll get donations to them after your event.
Visit brfoodbank.org for information on the organization, their goals, their needs and tons of tips on how to maximize your food drive.
