I have loved the experience I have had volunteering with the Food Bank. We came and sorted food for senior boxes and it was really amazing to see all of the people we would be helping. It is such a caring organization!

I love giving to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana. For every $1 donated to them, they can turn it around to make up to 8 meals for those in need! Whoa! They also have lots of ways you can help so there is something for everyone!

I have volunteered with the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana for 4 years. The organization does great work and provides a basic need for northwest Louisiana. So many people depend on the food bank for food assistance, especially seniors. Every time I volunteer I feel I am really helping someone less fortunate. It is very rewarding and gratifying.

I have been voluntering with the food bank for a number of years. There are so many people in our area which are in need and every day we are able to help them. We not only support kids and seniors directly, but help all the food pantry's, too.
