What We Do

We are the largest charitable anti-hunger network in South Louisiana.  Our mission is to end hunger by providing food access, advocacy, education, and disaster response.  

Join us.

Food Distribution

With warehouses in New Orleans and Lafayette, Second Harvest distributes 39+ million pounds of food and groceries a year. 

Mobile and School Pantries

A mobile pantry is a traveling food truck that brings fresh produce and other perishable foods directly to people living in places where such resources are scarce.

Summer Feeding and Kids Cafe

Our after-school Kids Cafe and Summer Feeding programs offer hot meals and healthy snacks when school meals are not available.

Senior Cafe

For many in our community hunger is a terrifying possibility and an awful reality – and it hits seniors hardest.  Senior Cafe prepares and distributes freshly made meals daily to senior centers.

Backpack Program

Designed to reduce childhood hunger by bridging the gap between the school day and the weekend or school holiday.

Client Services

We know that emergency food assistance is only a temporary solution to hunger.  That’s why we also provide access to additional public and private resources for clients struggling to achieve economic stability.
