When you come on “down by the riverside” in October, please remember to bring a non-perishable food item. We will have designated bins to collect donations. Click here to view a list of items you may donate. We understand that some people may want to donate but can’t attend the meeting. Anyone who would like to, may make a financial donation directly to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. We will update this site with more information about monetary donations shortly. Please do not send items to the LRTA office. Note: LRTA will not have the means to accept cash donations during the Fall Meeting.
We also understand that some people may not be in a position to donate at this time. If someone is able to donate, we certainly appreciate their generosity. But, this is not a requirement to attend the meeting. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 225-927-8837.
