Our response to Hurricane Laura
The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank is coordinating with Feeding America to maximize their support in response to the effects Hurricane Laura has left Southwestern Louisiana. It was only four years ago we ourselves were recovering from the devastating Flood of 2016 and many Feeding America food banks came to our aid. Now, it’s our turn to pay it forward.
We are receiving and pre-staging food and water for deployment into the impacted areas as well as shipping two tractor trailer loads of disaster food boxes to our sister food banks in those areas. Additionally, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank is processing the Hurricane Laura Amazon “Wish List” purchases to bundle and prepare them for shipping into the affected areas. This Amazon “Wish List” can be found here.
