We love working at the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana knowing that we are part of an organization that feeds thousands of people who are hungry every day. We realize that feeding those who are hungry makes a real difference in their lives, and also in ours.
We see working parents struggling to feed their family. After paying the rent, utilities and other expenses, they often don’t have enough left over to buy groceries. By providing food to these families, we are making a real difference for thousands in our community. All of us at one time or another have probably received assistance from friends or family during a difficult time. It feels good to pay it forward.
We love that we can help seniors. Living on one fixed income doesn’t go far, often times not to the end of the month, especially when adding in the cost of medications they may need to take. Making sure seniors live with dignity and have the food they need for three meals a day is the right thing to do. They have spent their lives taking care of others. It is rewarding to give back.
Thanks to our child feeding programs, many children who used to arrive home from school to a house with no food, now have enough to help them thrive. A child without proper nutrition will have decreased potential for success in life. Nourishing our children ensures a better future for them and our entire community. And who doesn’t love putting a smile on a child’s face?
Because of your generous past support, there are so many individuals like these and thousands of others that you have helped and we are so grateful.
Your continued partnership with the Food Bank will help ensure children, families and seniors in Northeast Louisiana get the food they need. Every $10 you donate provides 55 meals to our neighbors who are hungry. Your support, together with our 70 Partner Agencies and Programs, will provide individuals in our community with nutritious food, hope and dignity.
This is such important work, and we couldn’t do it without your support. Can we count on your donation today? As Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Together we are solving hunger,
P.S. There are people in our community who go hungry every month, which is why we ask for your support every month. Please consider becoming a monthly donor to help us feed our neighbors.
