Update on our 2016 Hurricane Season disaster response

Since the beginning Hurricane Harvey’s impact upon our state and region, we have responded to those in need in South Louisiana, particularly in Calcasieu, Cameron, Vermilion, Iberia, Jefferson Davis and Beauregard, and are also supporting storm victims in Texas. To date, we have collected and distributed approximately 400,000 pounds of disaster supplies. Thank you to everyone who has supported our response! 

Click here to support our ongoing fight against the everyday disaster of hunger, as well as helping us prepare for disasters year-round.

A monetary donation is the most efficient way to support our disaster-response efforts, and accept donations of food, water and disaster supplies at our New Orleans and Lafayette facilities Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Donations of disaster supplies: We are accepting donations of disaster supplies at three Second Harvest locations:

– Our main warehouse and facility, 700 Edwards Avenue in the Elmwood Warehouse District area, Mon-Fri, 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
– Our Lafayette warehouse and facility, 215 E. Pinhook Road, 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

When:  Until further notice (and we gladly accept disaster-response items year-round as well to have on hand for emergencies like Harvey.)

What we are accepting (both year-round and following disasters🙂

  • Non-perishable food items, especially “pop-top” canned goods that do not require can-openers
  • Granola bars, protein bars, cereals, peanut butter, canned tuna, canned meats
  • Water, sports drinks, fruit juices
