"We are so grateful for these individuals who donate their time and talent to support the Food Bank's hunger relief efforts in Central Louisiana," said Jayne Wright-Velez, executive director of the Food Bank.

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.
