Lafayette, LA – WoodmenLife® is now a Leadership Partner with Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. This alignment of like-minded, national organizations means big things right here in Louisiana.
WoodmenLife and its members have been committed to fighting food insecurity for many years, cementing that dedication in 2015, when fighting hunger became their National Community Focus. Now that work together is expanding, following the success of a campaign using WoodmenLife Impact®, the organization’s online fundraising tool, which delivered $1.076 million to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
WoodmenLife worked together with Feeding America to direct these funds to specific areas of need. One of those areas was Louisiana, where the Food Bank of Central Louisiana, Second Harvest Food Bank or Acadiana and Second Harvest Food Bank of New Orleans received a total of $89,100.
Countless members and groups in this area rallied around the WoodmenLife Impact campaign, and now they can see the benefits of their generosity close to home. This is an extension of other work WoodmenLife has done to fight hunger locally — collecting 29,557 pounds of food and $65,287 for food banks in Louisiana since 2015.
“At WoodmenLife, we believe no one should worry about where their next meal will come from,” said Regional Director Desi Doise. “Feeding America’s work for more than 40 million people each year is a lifeline our country can’t live without right now, and we’re honored to be able to work alongside them.”
