2/7/2010 – Shelter Spotlight #38

February 7, 2010


Howdy! Howdy! Howdy! First Off, Hatter & Beanz Would Like To Congratulate The New Orleans Saints On Their Very Impressive Super Bowl Victory This Evening Against The Indianapolis Colts. As A Tribute To The New Orleans Saints I’d Like To Feature A Very Important Food Bank This Evening. If We Can All Take 2 Minutes Out Our Celebrations Tonight And Read This Installment Of Shelter Spotlight, We May Very Become Inspired To Do Our Part In Stopping Hunger Not Only Globally But Locally As Well. Under The Direction Of Jayne Wright-Velez The Food Bank Of Central Louisiana Has Been Helping Families In And Around Central Louisiana Area For Over 20 Years (That’s Nearly Two Whole Decades). A Majority Of Their Efforts Allow Some Families Up To Five(5) Meals A Per Day, Which Deserves Applause In Itself. There Are Also Many Other Great Things They Do, And Many Other Great Services They Are Able To Provide. If You’re In Or around The Area They Are Located At 3223 Baldwin Ave., Alexandria, LA 71301.

It is with the generous support of our individual and corporate donors that the Food Bank of Central Louisiana is able to serve more than 24,400 every month in our community. For every dollar donated, the Food Bank of Central Louisiana can provide five meals to families in need. In 2009, we distributed over 5.7 million pounds of food to children, families, seniors in need of emergency food assistance. Each year, the Feeding America network of food banks and food-rescue organizations distributes more than 2 billion pounds of food and grocery products to support feeding programs at approximately 50,000 local charitable agencies, including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after-school programs and Kids Cafes. Every dollar, every can of food, is one more step towards ending hunger in our community. The Food Bank of Central Louisiana would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to all of those whose donations make our work possible every single day. Together, we can provide hope to hungry Americans“. – From Their Website – http://www.fbcenla.org
