In Outreach by Libby

Thank you for your overwhelming generosity at the annual LifeSongs Strike Out Hunger event! You donated 1,656 pounds of food! And thanks to Dara Maclean and Rock N Bowl for being a part of the success! Because of you, Second Harvest will be able to provide 1,494 meals to hungry families in Southeast Louisiana!

In the United States, more than one out of six children lives in a food insecure household, which means they do not always know where they will find their next meal. One in eight people in Louisiana is struggling with hunger. An elderly neighbor, a child’s classmate, a coworker or member of your church – someone you know is hungry.

For nearly 28 years, Second Harvest Food Bank has been feeding hope in south Louisiana. Second Harvest Food Bank is leading the fight against hunger through food distribution, advocacy, education and disaster response, including the Mississippi River flooding. Prior to this incident, 17 percent of households in the affected parishes were living below the poverty level. Second Harvest Food Bank will provide emergency food supplies to families affected by the flooding. They are helping both now and long-term.

Thank you for contributing to the good that Second Harvest is doing for our neighbors!
