From now through July 8th, residents within the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank's 11-parish service area will have the opportunity to make an impulse purchase that will help to change the face of hunger throughout the Greater Baton Rouge community. In addition to routine grocery purchases, shoppers can also "Check Out Hunger" by conveniently adding a $1, $3, or $5 donation to their grocery bill during this five-week campaign. To donate, all you have to do is tear off a donation slip at the register and hand it to the cashier. Your donation will be added directly to your grocery bill.
Check Out Hunger displays can be found at the following participating grocery stores:
You can also drop off food items at participating Neighbors Federal Credit Union locations.
