Help Fight Hunger

Now through the end of the year, Baton Rouge Coca-Cola is partnering with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, Associated Food Stores, several of their independent supermarkets, Clear Channel Radio and WAFB-TV in an effort to collect food and cash for the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.

Pre-packaged Associated Food Store bags filled with non-perishable holiday food items will be available to purchase for only $10.00 at participating AG Food Stores. These bags will be picked up from the stores by Food Bank volunteers and used this holiday season to feed those who are in need. For each bag purchased, you will receive a FREE 20 oz. Coca-Cola product.

There will be live radio events at several of the participating supermarkets, such as Leblanc's Food Stores, Hi Nabor, and Matherne's Supermarket. The Coca-Cola Santa truck and Santa himself will be in attendance as Christmas music fills the air with holiday cheer. So bring the kids to take a picture with Santa, purchase one or as many bags as you can and help us feed those who are hungry this holiday season.

Don't know what to donate? The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank can always use items to make a holiday meal. Many families don't have the means to buy the kind of food the rest of us enjoy at this time of year. Stuffing, canned sweet potatoes, canned pumpkin, green beans, onion topping, cream of mushroom soup, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese, instant potatoes, rice and gravy ... these are just some of the foods our friends and neighbors would like to enjoy. The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank can also use cooking oil, flour and sugar ... staples everyone needs to have on hand when cooking a meal for the holidays.
