Food Bank announces June food distribution

The Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana, in partnership with the cities of Monroe, Ruston, Farmerville, Waterproof, and Tallulah, will host food distributions this June for people who are in need of food.

According to Feeding America’s 2021 Food Insecurity Projections, over 66,000 people in Northeast Louisianans struggle with food insecurity.

The distributions are open to residents who need food and live in the parish the distribution takes place. Food will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

The food drive for Tensas Parish will take place on Wednesday, June 1 at 10 a.m. at Old Waterproof High School located at Main Street in Waterproof.

The food drive for Union Parish will be on Thursday, June 2 at 10 a.m. at the Farmerville Recreation Center located at 116 Cox Ferry Road in Farmerville. 

The food drive for Madison Parish will take place on Friday, June 3 at 10 a.m. at the Tallulah Community Center located at 800 N. Beech St in Tallulah.

The food drive for Ouachita Parish will take place on Tuesday, June 7, at 10 a.m. at the Monroe Civic Center located at 401 Lea Joyner in Monroe.

The food drive for Lincoln Parish will take place on Thursday, June 9 at 10 a.m. at the Ruston Sports Complex located at 2001 Champions Way in Ruston. 

The distribution will be a “drive-thru” service with volunteers loading food boxes into the vehicles. Recipients will not be required to get out of their vehicles, and are asked to clear space in their trunk prior to the distribution if possible.
