About Second Harvest Food Bank:

Second Harvest Food Bank is an affiliated ministry of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans, a member of Feeding America, and a United Way Partner Agency. Second Harvest leads the fight against hunger and building food security in South Louisiana by providing food access, advocacy, education and disaster response.  Second Harvest provides food to more than 700 partners and programs across 23 parishes, from the Mississippi border to the Texas state line. Together, we make up the largest charitable anti-hunger network in the state. With our community’s help, we can make food security a reality for every household in South Louisiana. 

Since the start of the coronavirus emergency in March, Second Harvest has distributed more than 50 million pounds of food and supplies to residents across twenty-three parishes of South Louisiana. This is more than double what the food bank delivered during the same period a year ago. Second Harvest staff, volunteers, and community partners have also distributed more than 5 million pounds of supplies to recent hurricane survivors in Southwest Louisiana.
