Northshore Food Bank is truly a community food bank. Supported by the generosity of businesses, civic organizations, and individuals, the food bank serves the needs of the most vulnerable in our community. Northshore Food Bank serves residents of St. Tammany and Washington Parishes and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Northshore Food Bank not only distributes food to those in need, but also offers additional key programs including our Resale Shop.
Northshore Food Bank Resale Shop offers clothing, household items, furniture and many other great items at greatly reduced rates. Proceeds help support the operations of the food bank. Northshore Food Bank provides food assistance to more than 400 individuals and families each week who live at or below the 130% federal poverty guidelines and have found themselves in need within our community. After qualifying for assistance, an individual can receive a minimum of 35 lbs. of food once each month and families can receive a minimum of 70 lbs. of food each month. Depending on donations, recipients may also receive what we call a “lagniappe” box. A lagniappe box may be filled with breads, pastries, dairy products, fresh produce, or frozen foods.
