The City of West Monroe, in partnership with the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana, will host a food box distribution on Thursday, June 18.
The distribution will be held on June 18 from 10 a.m. until supplies run out, in the parking lot of the Ike Hamilton Expo Center located at 501 Mane Street in West Monroe.
The food box distribution is open to all residents who live in the City of West Monroe or in West Ouachita Parish who are in need of food.
Food boxes will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Each box will contain 25 pounds of non-perishable food items. In addition to the food boxes, each vehicle will receive a 5 pound pork loin, 10 pounds of chicken fajita strips, and a bag of fresh grapes.
The distribution will be a “drive thru” service, with members of the Louisiana National Guard loading food boxes into the vehicles. Recipients will not have to get out of their vehicles, and are asked to clear space in their trunk for the food box prior to the distribution.
For those in need of food who live in other areas of Northeast Louisiana, help is also available. Visit foodbanknela.org/find-food or call the Food Bank at 318-322-3567 to find a local food distribution.
