Disaster Response


Food Banks Respond

Louisiana's Food Banks have been working tirelessly for the past few weeks to respond to the August Floods. You can help us continue to provide food, water, and cleaning supplies with your donations. 

During disaster response, cash donations are the most needed resource at Louisiana's Food Banks. Donors that want to help support the quick and sustained response for hunger relief in Louisiana are encouraged to donate cash online to enable quick and effective response to changing needs in our communities. Cash donations allow us to purchase the food needed in the community and allows us purchase food from local businesses to help support for the local economy. 

Food donations are always appreciated. When you donate food to a food bank it must be carefully inspected and sorted before it can be safely distributed to the community.  Cash donations allow for flexibility and quick response to changing community needs and allow food banks to leverage their purchasing power to stretch your dollar even further.
