A few times throughout the year at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, our parking lot overflows with cars, the board room is packed with people, and there is an ocean of matching shirts throughout our warehouse. That’s when you know the ExxonMobil volunteer team has shown up to volunteer – sorting and packing food boxes for children, seniors, and families in need.

They mean business because they know people need food. Our mission to feed the food insecure in our community becomes the ExxonMobil volunteer team’s mission as well. Even throughout the pandemic and Hurricane Ida, ExxonMobil has always been willing to show up and make a difference when we needed it most.

“ExxonMobil is proud to support the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to feed families in our community. Our employee volunteers appreciate the opportunity to give back to make the community where we live and work a better place. Volunteering at the Food Bank has provided a unique opportunity for our employees to work together to build relationships while sorting and packing boxes to serve others,” says Shanna Noble, Turnaround and Construction Department Head at ExxonMobil.

In 2021, we recognized ExxonMobil with our Outstanding Business Group Award for donating over 300 service hours to the Food Bank. The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank relies heavily on individual and group volunteers who give their time to help us pack and distribute food to families in need. We could not do what we do without our corporate partners.

The outstanding men and women of the ExxonMobil volunteer team consistently work together in our warehouse to organize, process and box non-perishable food that is then distributed through more than 100 member agencies across our 11-parish service area.

Their team embodies the spirit of volunteering which is to strengthen the community in which they live by working as one. They take great pride in the number of boxes they can build and items they can sort, making this an incredible cross-department team-building opportunity that strengthens the bond between each other while working together toward a common goal.

If your company is looking to get involved in volunteering with us, now is a great time. Corporate volunteer groups may reserve our board room for staff training, and they can also participate as a team of volunteers in our sorting and packing area.
