Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana
In Morehouse and Lincoln Parish parishes, the Adopt-a-Senior programs of the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana support seniors age 60 and better who are living at or below the poverty level. A large box of food every month for one year supplements seniors' nutritional needs so they do not have to choose between buying food or other life sustaining necessities such as medicine, rent or utilities. Volunteers provide thousands of hours each year to pack boxes, manage distribution sites, transport food to outlying parishes and deliver the boxes. The program serves more than 1,400 seniors each month.
