BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank has partnered with Baton Rouge Coca-Cola, Associated Grocers, WAFB Channel 9 and iHeart Radio to collect food and monetary donations from now until the end of the year!

Red, pre-packed, Coca-Cola bags filled with non-perishable holiday food items can be purchased for only $10.00 at participating Associated Grocers Food Stores.

Once the bag is purchased, you can drop it in the Food Bank boxes inside the stores.

The bags will be picked up from the stores by volunteers and distributed throughout our 11-parish service area in an effort to feed the hungry for the holidays.

Last year, Baton Rouge answered the call for help and 9,667 bags were sold to help families in need.
