How to sign up for food...

Our Food Bank distributes several tons of groceries per month

Each month, on the third Saturday, our church distributes free groceries to qualified families. As a part of the North Louisiana Food Bank, we give the groceries to families who qualify under the government's guidelines.

On each of these monthly distributions, we normally give away almost 5 tons of food (the last distribution was 9,900 lbs).

Workers fill the bags for food distribution

During the Thanksgiving distribution we were able to distribute frozen hens to each family in addition to their normal share of food, which added even more pounds to the figure above. Thanks to the Lord's blessing and the generosity of our members, the Food Bank continues to be effective in combating hunger in North East Louisiana.

Recently the Northeast Louisiana Food Bank announced increased income caps, making it easier to qualify for free food. Check the chart below to see the new caps.

Our distribution day is the third Saturday of each month at 9:00 AM.

"I want to thank you fine people for all that you do. The food was well needed in our home. Bless you all..." -J.P. & family

"My family and I would like to thank you for the wonderful service that you provide with the Food Bank. We have been so fortunate to receive this gift for the past 7 months. But this last month we received more food. Not to be unappreciative of the well balanced food of the months prior, the extra food has helped my family of 5 to have more food to last us for the entire month. Thank you so much! (Please keep us in your prayers that very soon we will no longer have to depend on this wonderful, blessed service.)" -M.L. & family
