Food donations can be dropped off to the BBB office at 4003 W. Congress St. in Lafayette and will be given to Second Harvest Food Bank in their efforts to end hunger. The BBB team will pick up donations, if requested.

“BBB is excited to invite businesses and consumers to join in on our November Impact Initiative as we strive to help those in need. We can reach more Acadiana families by working together.” said Jillian Dickerson, President and CEO of BBB Serving Acadiana.

These items include grains such as cereal, pasta, rice and flour; evaporated and dry milk, cooking oils, canned fruits and vegetables, dried fruits, proteins including canned meats, dried beans and peanut butter; coffee, paper products, diapers and cleaning products.
