Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank hosting drive-thru meal giveaway for restaurant employees, gig workers

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - As more and more people face the prospect of losing work, food banks are putting together disaster boxes to help anyone who doesn’t know where their next meal is coming from.

In Baton Rouge, Mike Manning the president of the Baton Rouge Food Bank says it’s important community members around that state do what they can to help stock those boxes by donating food or time.

“You know we can always use more help. Whenever we get in these crisis situations money is king. It really helps us to buy more food, to extend our hours, cover our overtime, do all the things we need to be doing to make sure we’re feeding the community,” said Manning.
