AARP Louisiana asks members to support Second Harvest Food Bank in response to oil spill

Since the first report of oil on the Gulf Coast, Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans Acadiana has been delivering emergency food boxes, baby formula and food assistance to those living in the coastal regions affected by the oil spill.
AARP Louisiana is asking its members and partner organizations to consider supporting Second Harvest with their donations of food, funds or time.
"Second Harvest has distributed more than 647 emergency food boxes to needy families and older adults who have been severely impacted by this environmental catastrophe," said AARP Louisiana State Director Nancy McPherson. "As this crisis continues to unfold, we know that our communities will need assistance for an extended period of time. We can help with our financial support and donations of food to Second Harvest."
Second Harvest, an affiliated corporation of Catholic Charities, is leading the fight against hunger and is committed to providing meals to men, women, children and seniors during these trying times.
