What happens when you buy groceries for the same folks over and over?
We believe it helps fight food-insecurity and poverty. So far we have supported 137 of our city's culture bearers with "Food Love" - $200,000 worth of groceries!
On our job-creation work - we have helped create over $500,000 worth of gig-work opportunities for 107 musicians, 18 Second Line club members, 19 baby dolls, 31 Mardi Gras Indians... the folks who make our city's culture.
As Feed The Second Line has grown – we have worked to create a stronger safety-net and job opportunities. When challenges arise – like Hurricane Ida, we have stepped up to help in meaningful ways like delivering aid, fixing roofs, and providing food.
