Hurricane Ida Response

Hurricane Ida caused catastrophic damage to Louisiana, leaving more than a million people without power. The Louisiana food bank network is responding by distributing food, water, and supplies in the hardest hit areas of our state.

Our MISSION

The Mission of Feeding Louisiana is to be a unified voice for Louisiana’s hungry by providing short-term food relief while seeking long-term solutions to hunger through advocacy, education, and leadership.

 

Feeding Louisiana was created by the five regional food banks within the state to support their collaborative efforts to accomplish statewide policy, advocacy, and food and fund raising objectives.
