AT&T Support of the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana Helps Organization Meet Needs of Area Children

AT&T has contributed $5,000 to the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana to support the organization’s Back Pack Program.

The Back Pack Program is a nationally recognized program for providing chronically hungry children with a weekly backpack of food to take home for the weekend and holidays. The Back Pack Program provides 800 children each week with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food to take home on weekends and school vacations when other resources are not available.

“Our area Food Bank has done tremendous work for many years, fighting hunger and providing families and children with the resources they need, and the support of AT&T and others in the community is key to the continued success the Food Bank is having to eradicate hunger,” said State Senator Jay Morris.

The Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana provides food, hope and dignity to our neighbors across a 12-parish area who struggle with hunger. The Food Bank is leading the movement to alleviate hunger through education, collaboration and advocacy in northeast Louisiana.

“I have been so impressed by the strength and resiliency of our community, especially as we faced the challenges of 2020, and I am thankful for our area non-profits and members of our business community, like AT&T, who are committed to supporting our neighbors and helping to ensure their success,” said State Representative Fred Jones.

“The support from the business community is critical to our ability to meet the needs of our neighbors, and we appreciate AT&T’s consistent support of the communities we serve,” said Jean Toth, Executive Director, Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana.

“It is an honor to have the opportunity to continue supporting the great work being done by the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana.”

“As a result of the Pandemic and the impact it has had on the economy, community needs are even greater this year, and it is an honor to have the opportunity to continue supporting the great work being done by the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana,” said Robert Vinet, Regional Director, AT&T.
