Adopt Pierre Pig and Thibodeaux Turkey!
Brighten the holidays with Pierre Pig or Thibodeaux Turkey. For just $25 you can “adopt” a pig or turkey beanie stuffed animal. All proceeds go to purchase hams and turkeys during the holidays for those who are unable to afford a holiday meal.

Hunger Action Month may only be 30 days, but the fight against hunger is not.
Each September the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank with Feeding America asks all Americans to take action against domestic hunger during Hunger Action Month.
Throughout Hunger Action Month, Feeding America’s nationwide network of more than 200 food banks is calling upon communities to take action through the “30 Ways in 30 Days” campaign. Whether advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or giving your time and energy, find the way that is right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month.
Remember – hunger is 365 days a year. Consider using some of the suggestions from the “30 Ways in 30 Days” calendar throughout the rest of year and continue to help feed hope to the hungry.
To pledge a commitment to take action during Hunger Action Month or for more information visit the Hunger Action Month website.

Huggies Every Little Bottom
One in three American moms struggle with diaper needs. These moms have had to cut back on basics such as food, utilities, or even child care to provide diapers for their babies. Huggies Every Little Botom is a nationwide campaign benefiting local food and diaper banks with diapers donated by both community supporters, like you, and Huggies.
You can donate diapers to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank by purchasing diapers from our Amazon Wishlist. The diapers purchased will be mailed and delivered directly to the Food Bank.
Mobile Pantries are an important outreach program of The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Mobile Pantries provide an opportunity to deliver much needed fresh produce and food assistance to areas defined as food deserts – geographical locations that are high poverty and too far away from local grocery stores without acquiring some means of transportation.
The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and Together Baton Rouge hold Mobile Pantries at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Scotlandville. The Mobile Pantries provide healthy, nutritious food items to the public for free in the city’s largest food desert. All pantries are on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to change.
Our next mobile pantries will be held later this spring. Dates will be posted as they are acquired.
Please contact the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank for additional details regarding dates and times at (225) 359-9940.
