Support the Food Bank through the Feinstein Challenge

During the months of March and April, philanthropist Alan Shawn Feinstein will match a portion of donations to hunger relief agencies across the nation, including the Food Bank of Central Louisiana.  Last year the Food Bank received $2,212 from the Feinstein Challenge. 

Donations received during March and April are critical to this fundraising effort because the amount the Food Bank receives from the Feinstein Challenge is based on the total amount of funds and food donated to the organization.  Each pound of food collected is worth $1 in this annual challenge to fight hunger.

The Food Bank has produced a video that illustrates the need our local community has for our services. We visited with some of our member affiliates and talked with a few of their clients. We also have sections on our Adopt-A-Senior program, as well as our Kids Cafe after school program and the Back Pack program.
