Welcome to The Food Bank of Central Louisiana

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, Good Food Project, and the Back Pack program.

Back Pack Program

The Food Bank’s Backpack Program is designed to meet the needs of hungry children at times when other resources are not available, such as weekends and school vacations. 

 

The backpacks are filled with nutritious, easy-to-open food that does not require stove-top cooking. Since the food is distributed in backpacks, the children can discretely take the food home without being ridiculed or teased by other students.

Kids Cafe Program

Kids Cafe is one of the nation's largest meal service programs, providing free and prepared food nutrition education to hungry children in safe and nurturing environments. This after school program will provide nutritious hot meals and heavy snacks to youth that might not otherwise receive evening meals. In addition to providing hot meals to hungry children, Kids Cafe offers nutrition education, tutoring, activities and individual attention kids need in their schoolwork.
