Feeding Louisiana's member food banks are working tirelessly to serve Louisiana's seniors, families, and workers affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. We are committed to serving Louisiana's communities in need throughout this crisis.

For continuous updates, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

HOW TO GET ASSISTANCE
Food from food banks

Each of our member food banks are working to meet new demand for their help. Our traditional partners in that work - including food pantries, shelters, and other meal programs - may have decreased ability to assist in distributing food. We have also shifted to limiting person-to-person contact through "no-touch" distributions, to encourage social distancing. Click here to find your food bank by parish or dial 211 to locate emergency food assistance.

Free meals for Children

The Louisiana Department of Education has made a map available of participating meal sites where students can access food during the school closure.

Additionally, the Louisiana Budget Project has compiled this spreadsheet that includes school meal service information in all parishes, including locations, days and hours of operation, and ages served.

Apply for snap benefits

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly Food Stamps, is designed to act quickly to help individuals and families facing food budget shortfalls. Apply for SNAP online at dcfs.la.gov/getsnap or by texting GETSNAP to 898211.

Apply for unemployment benefits

If your employment has been impacted by COVID-19, you may be eligible for support from the Louisiana Workforce Commission. Learn more and apply for Unemployment Benefits at this site or by calling 1-866-783-5567, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

How To Help
can i donate to my Food bank?

We deeply appreciate your support during this challenging time. Individuals looking to donate are encouraged to make monetary donations, rather than food or other items, to minimize the need for person-to-person contact as our warehouses accept deliveries. To make a donation, please visit our donation page or donate directly to your local food bank by navigating to their website from this page.

call for food bank VOLUNTEERs

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, our five member food banks are facing a significant shortage in volunteers who can help us meet the growing need for emergency food and assistance. We expect rates of food insecurity to continue to rise throughout this crisis and we need your help to serve them. 

Each of our member food banks listed below are looking for additional volunteers to support both our regular food distributions and our growing emergency response efforts. If you are healthy and able to lend your time, please contact your local food bank using the information below.

 

Please Note: We are committed to the well-being of our volunteers, staff and clients; therefore, we ask that you please consider staying home if you are high risk. Precautions will be taken regarding group size and number of volunteers.
