NWLA Food Bank opens two new mobile children’s meal sites in Shreveport


SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana announced Friday that they will be adding two new “to-go” style lunch meals for children 18-years-old or younger in Shreveport.

According to NWLA Food Bank, the children’s to-go lunch meals will be served via mobile on Monday, July 13 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Columbia Park and Noel Methodist Church.

Children age 18 and under may receive meals through SFSP. A person 19 years of age and over who has a mental or physical disability (as determined by a State or local educational agency) and who participates during the school year in a public or private non- profit school program (established for the mentally or physically disabled) is also eligible to receive meals.

“So we currently have about 10 or 11 site changes throughout the summer, but we’ve added two new sites that are a new model for the food bank,” said Executive Director Martha Marak, “We’re actually distributing food meals for children from a van. So we’re a mobile site that we can travel.”
