Food Donation Programs
Lagniappe du Coeur
Lagniappe du Coeur – “extra from the heart” – is Louisiana’s first prepared and perishable food rescue program (PPFRP). Through this PPFRP, restaurants, caterers and other food preparers have a chance to feed the hungry by doing what they do best – serving good food. This component of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank rescues prepared and perishable food and distributes it to area shelters, group homes and meal sites, which in turn provide the food to our area’s needy.
Plant for the Hungry
If you have a garden YOU can help. It is spring and vegetable gardens are coming alive. This is a great way for you to hep provide nutritious, fresh food for the hungry and yourself. When planting a vegetable garden please remember the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Plant an extra row for the hungry. We will gladly accept your donations. This is a wonderful way to help provide an individual or family in need with nutritious energy to get them through a work day and school day.

Hunters for the Hungry
Hunters for The Hungry encourages hunters and fisherman to enjoy the plentiful wild game in Louisiana and give back by sharing frozen fish and game with the hungry through “Donate A Deer.” Donate a whole, freshly harvested deer (you keep the backstrap and tenderloin) at no cost to you – Hunters For The Hungry pays for the processing.
