Board of Directors

Dear Food Bank Friends,


This past year has been an exciting time for the Food Bank.  We completed Phase I of our capital campaign project and opened the doors to a new efficient and customer-focused Client Services Center.  The improved layout provides easier access for our clients and a drive-through distribution area.


Did you know?  The Food Bank of Central Louisiana supplies food to over 100 agencies in 11 parishes.  Together, we help to feed 22,400 people monthly.  Unfortunately, 57% of the households we serve have children under the age of 18. 


The 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.  This program is just one of the important ways that the Food Bank helps.


The Food Bank team and Board of Directors continue to be overwhelmed by the kindness of our local communities.  It is only with this support that we are able to continue to strive toward our goal of distributing 10 million pounds of food per year by 2020. Thank you for sharing our vision and for your dedication!


All donations make a difference, whether it is monetary, food or time.  Thank you for all you do to help those in need in Central Louisiana.
