About the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank

Our Mission

Our mission is to feed the hungry in Baton Rouge and the surrounding parishes by providing food and educational outreach through faith-based and other community partners.

What is a Food Bank?

A food bank is a nonprofit organization which solicits, procures, inventories and warehouses donated food and other products. This food is then distributed to a variety of community agencies such as pantries, meal sites, homes, shelters and soup kitchens which serve the people in need.
