Mayor Jamie Mayo and the Monroe City Council are pleased to announce the City of Monroe is partnering with the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana to distribute 1000 food boxes to families whose household incomes have been affected by COVID-19. Thanks to donations from Pepsi Beverage North America and the SAM’s Club (in Monroe), water will also be given to families.

Mayor Jamie Mayo says, “I want to encourage those who can to support the Food Bank of northeast Louisiana. In addition to their regular efforts, Executive Director Jean Toth and her team at the Food Bank are doing an outstanding job keeping food on the table of families who have been affected by the Coronavirus and tornado.”

The Monroe “drive-thru” distribution will take place at Friday, May 1, beginning at 10 am until supplies are gone – at the Monroe Civic Center, located at 401 Lea Joyner Expressway. Monroe Police will guide traffic while volunteers from the Louisiana National Guard and other city personnel help distribute supplies.

Please note:

  • Food boxes will be distributed on a first come, first served basis
  • Each box will contain 25-pounds of non-perishable food items
  • Please clear space in your trunk or seat prior to arrival at distribution site
