Northshore Food Bank provides food assistance for the food insecure population in St Tammany and Washington Parish. Through our various nutritional food programs, we serve an average of 400 individuals and families each week who live at or below the 130% federal poverty guideline. As a non-profit, we are supported by local food drives held by individuals, schools, civic organizations and businesses, as well as through Second Harvest food donations and monetary donations.
The holiday season is the busiest time of the year for us for food donations. However January and February are two of our slowest months for food donations. Currently our Most Needed Items are: cooking oil, chicken broth, dry beans and rice.
NFB is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm to distribute food boxes and to accept donations. If you are interested in hosting a food drive, please contact Ginger Kunkle (Community Engagement Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org
