Non perishables

Non-perishables are among the staples for donations to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.

During this time of economic uncertainty, there are many who need a helping hand.

The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank recognizes that need and has partnered with the Church International in Livingston to distribute food on Friday, April 24 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The church's address is 26490 S. Frost Road, Livingston, LA 70754.

According to the church, the food bank will be offering 75 pound boxes of food on a first come, first served basis until supplies run out.

That went well. Got in line at 0915, reached the church at 0950, Nat Guard soldiers was waving everyone off. They had already ran out of food by 0930. There was still 2 miles of cars on hwy 63 waiting to get nonexistent food.
