Thanks to your help, we delivered 6,672 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana! The non-perishable food items were collected as part of the library’s Food for Thought Amnesty Days Program.
“We are always eager to help, especially at this time of year,” stated John Tuggle, Executive Director of Shreve Memorial Library. “I am always amazed at the amount of food we collect and the generosity of our patrons.”
Our Food for Thought Amnesty Days Food Drive took place November 12 through December 12. During this time, patrons could bring in non-perishable food items to relieve overdue fines. The food drive took place at all 21 branches. All items collected were donated to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.
The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana serves as the primary resource for fighting hunger in Northwest Louisiana. Their vision is to end hunger in Northwest Louisiana by ensuring consolidated network of effective food collection and distribution will provide universal access to food for the needy in our communities.
