UPDATE: We have learned that the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office did not host this event.
It has been brought to the attention of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank that our likeness and image were used to promote an event hosted by the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office that took place on Saturday, October 9, 2021. Our logo was used without authorization and indicated that we were a sponsor of this event, which is unequivocally false. At this event, vaccines could be exchanged for criminal record expungement, food, and gift cards. The Food Bank was not affiliated with this event in any capacity.
The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank does not require proof of vaccinations to receive services. Our organization does not support nor endorse events or actions that would create discrimination of any individual experiencing food insecurity before or after receiving service.
