Food and Fund Drives are a great way to support Second Harvest Food Bank. Community food drives provide close to one million pounds of food every year!
For every $1 donation, Second Harvest can provide 3 meals. Consider doing a fund drive instead of or in conjunction with your food drive. Cash donations support our operations and innovative programs to address the root causes of hunger through advocacy and education. Monetary donations also allow Second Harvest to purchase bulk food to be repacked by volunteers. Because we make large, bulk purchases, our cost per pound for food is far lower than that of food bought at retail prices by individuals.
If you have any questions or need help enrolling either your food or fund drive, please contact Michelle Rosamond at firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-729-2849. For drives in the Lafayette / Lake Charles / Acadiana area, contact Jennifer Jagneaux at 337-408-2463 or email@example.com.
