The Food Bank of NELA Senior Program has partnered with the City of Monroe and the Goodfellow’s organization to help low-income senior citizens, aged 60 and older, stretch their food budgets by providing them with supplemental food each month. Seniors living on fixed incomes must often choose between covering the cost of life-saving medications and buying the food they need to stay healthy.
This program has grown to serve over 1400 seniors throughout Northeast Louisiana. The distribution at the Food Bank in Monroe will serve those seniors who are able to drive through and pick up their boxes. The distribution at the Food Bank will serve those seniors who are already enrolled and live within Ouachita Parish.
"City employee community benevolent projects" is #12 on Mayor Jamie Mayo's 60 for 60 list of projects during his current term.
