Food Distribution

With one in six households in Louisiana at risk of hunger, the solution requires a tremendous community effort.  Second Harvest represents the largest charitable anti-hunger network in Louisiana, and we offer a variety of distribution methods in order to reach as many households in need as possible.  Non-profit and faith-based food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, and other partner organizations located in neighborhoods throughout South Louisiana depend on us to supply food and grocery products year round.

With warehouses in New Orleans and Lafayette, Second Harvest distributes 25 million pounds of food and groceries to 474 partners and programs across South Louisiana, reaching 210,000 people each year.  That’s the equivalent of 22.5 million meals to individuals and families in need.

If you are interested in joining the fight to solve hunger in South Louisiana, please give today.  A $1 donation helps us provide 3 meals for a family in need.  For more information, contact Second Harvest Director of Programs and Services Kimberly Krupa at, or at 504-729-6330.
