Feed the Needy
The Children’s Church Ministry has partnered with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank for “FEED the NEEDY” during the months of September and October. All members are asked to bring can goods and nonperishable items. 
 
Facts: Louisiana is #1 state in the country with food-insecure seniors. People in the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank Area are more likely to experience hunger than overall populations across America. One in 7 people in the food bank service area faces hunger. Thirty-six percent of food-insecure people in the service area aren't eligible for federal nutrition programs like SNAP and WIC. One in 5 children in the service area is food insecure as well.  
 
Please Help - Why: Some working families aren't making enough to make ends meet. For additional information please see the Children’s Church staff.
