SML delivers over 8,000 lbs of food to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana

SML donates 8000 lbs of food
Thanks to you, we delivered 8,283 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, setting a record for the amount of food donated for our Food for Thought Amnesty Days Program! During this program, patrons can donate food to cover overdue fines.

“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 13 through December 13. Throughout this time, patrons were able to bring in non-perishable food items to relieve overdue fines. The food drive took place at all 21 branches of the library. 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 ultimately end hunger in Northwest Louisiana by ensuring a consolidated network of effective food collection and distribution in order to provide universal access to food for the needy in our communities.
