Second Harvest is leading the fight against hunger and building food security in South Louisiana through food access, education, advocacy and disaster response. One in five families in South Louisiana are at risk of hunger. With your help, Second Harvest provides more than 34 million meals annually to people in need.
Our goal is to raise $40,000 to provide more fresh fruits and vegetables to the children, families and seniors who need them most. With $40,000, Second Harvest can provide up to 10 truckloads of items such as carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, apples and citrus fruit to hungry families in South Louisiana. Much of this produce will be sourced from local Louisiana farmers. We’re grateful for your support and the matching gifts from Whitney Bank and a generous friend of the food bank to help deliver nutritious food to our neighbors in need.
