Hurricane Harvey has brought historic devastation to our neighbors in the Houston area and along the Texas and Louisiana Coast. With flood waters continuing to rise, evacuees are heading to northwest Louisiana. The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana will continue to meet the food needs of our community and are dedicated to providing food and hope to those that were displaced by the storm.
The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana has partnered with Brookshire Grocery Company and the Minden Chamber of Commerce to gather food and household items for a Disaster Food Drive.
Brookshire’s and Super 1 and Spring Market stores in Shreveport, Bossier, Benton, Minden, Mansfield, Zwolle and the Minden Chamber of Commerce in Louisiana as well as Overton, Kilgore, Longview, and Hallsville in Texas will be Food Drive locations.
Non-perishable food and house hold items such as cleaning supplies, paper towels, mops, brooms, etc. are needed. The collected items will be delivered to sister food banks in the hurricane’s path.
The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana is also accepting financial contributions to support our efforts to meet the food assistance needs of disaster victims as well as the increased need for food at our Partner Agencies.
