Louisiana flooding - material handling equipment donations needed for disaster response

In response to the floods that devastated Southern & South-West Louisiana in August, Feeding America is in need of material handling equipment to replace what was lost at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. 

This critical partner in feeding hungry people throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area usually operates from a 172,000 square foot warehouse with a 6,000 square foot freezer. The facility suffered significant damage in the floods. They took in over four feet of water, and their fleet and equipment was a total loss. It is estimated to cost between $7,500,000-$8,500,000 to make the facility fully operational once again. They are currently distributing food from a 18,000 square foot temporary facility with loaned trucks and equipment.

Feeding America is looking for new or refurbished material handling and logistics equipment to help this food bank get back to the important work they do supporting the people of the Greater Baton Rouge area in their times of need. If you think you or your firm can help, click here to complete a short survey.

Feeding America's mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

Feeding America, the American Logistics Aide Network and MHI have enjoyed a long-standing collaborative relationship. Please consider helping them if you are able.
