We learned so much about the human spirit this year. We learned of its tremendous strength in the face of adversity and its ability to both see and be the good in our world. Through the kindness of our most committed supporters, we were reminded that Baton Rouge and our surrounding community care deeply for our neighbors who may need a helping hand.

Inspired by those individuals who have made a significant difference and will continue to do so in the future, we are honored to announce that 2021 will be the inaugural year for three newly created giving societies. Comprised of past, current, and future donors, membership in these societies intends to serve as a way to express our sincerest gratitude.

 

 

 

Nourish 365 members are special donors who commit to recurring monthly gifts which allow us to plan for the year ahead and give us the opportunity to feed as many people as possible. Become a member and have access to fun promotional items such as t-shirts and bumper stickers so that you can proudly show the community that you support the fight against hunger!

Our Hunger Action Council was formed to elevate fundraising efforts in order to sustain our mission. Members are community minded investors who take a leadership role by making a multiyear financial pledge, which can be submitted in annual, quarterly, or monthly payments. As a valued member of the council, you will be invited to engage with our leadership staff and be kept updated on our efforts in our fight to end hunger.

The Fraenkel Society was established to recognize supporters who count the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank among their most cherished philanthropies. By leaving a legacy through an estate provision, beneficiary designation, or life income gift, you become part of a treasured group of forward-thinking individuals who value and support our long-term success. You need not be wealthy to leave a legacy, as there is no minimum. Members of the Fraenkel Society will be invited to events with our leadership staff that will keep you updated on our efforts toward our fight against hunger.

The society is named in honor of Mr. Albert Fraenkel and the Fraenkel family. Mr. Fraenkel has been a long-time member of our Food Bank family, donating both his time and financial support. In the greatest example of his generous spirit, Mr. Fraenkel made it possible for the Food Bank to acquire the Fraenkel Furniture Warehouse land and building. It is because of this transformational opportunity that we are able to function at our current capacity. We are forever grateful to Mr. Fraenkel for empowering us to serve thousands of our hungry neighbors each year.
