Our Mission

The Mission of the Louisiana Food Bank Association (LFBA) is to be a unified voice for Louisiana’s hungry by providing short-term food relief while seeking long-term solutions to hunger through advocacy, education, and leadership.

The Louisiana Food Bank Association (LFBA) was created by the five regional food banks within the state to support their collaborative efforts to accomplish statewide policy, advocacy, and food and fund raising objectives.

Hunger in Louisiana

  • According to the USDA, 1 in 6 Louisiana households with more than 784,000 family members struggle to put food on the table. 
  • One-in-Twenty households report skipping meals because they don’t have enough money for food.
  • In Louisiana, 23% of seniors, nearly one-in-four, face the threat of hunger. This ranks Louisiana as the second worst state for senior hunger.
  • Feeding America estimates that 1 in 5 Louisiana children live in households that are food insecure. In several rural parishes one-third of children are food insecure.
  • Hunger affects every parish and community in Louisiana.
