At the time of this writing, April 1st, our community and our country are
experiencing a unique need due to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The Food
Bank of Central Louisiana has mobilized to ensure our most vulnerable neighbors
have access to the nutritious food they need during this uncertain time.
As schools have closed, we know that means thousands of children are without
breakfast and lunch. Our seniors are at the highest risk of COVID-19 complications.
Hourly workers are worried about paying their bills and buying food as so many
of our service industries are closed. Many of our food pantries are not open as
they are run by senior volunteers who are most at risk for infection.
