The Food Bank of Central Louisiana serves a nine-parish area and more than 42,500 households with assistance. Louisiana ranks #1 in the nation for Senior Citizen hunger. During the upcoming holiday seasons, hunger is magnified in our communities even more. Do not let this happen to someone you know!
