Eunice Food Bank seeks volunteers for move to new location

The Eunice Food Bank serves the community of many families in need. And its purpose and goal is to continue to serve the needy.
However, at this time Mary Ann Guillory, director at the food bank, needs volunteers to help with moving to a new location.
Guillory added, “We are currently in the process of moving to a new location. First Baptist Church in Eunice, along with other GEMA ministers and their church families, has graciously accepted the challenge. They are reaching out for volunteers to help in the efforts.”

More people turning to the Eunice Food Bank for assistance

More people are turning to the Eunice Food Bank for assistance as the coronavirus has slowed the economy along with the spread of the disease.
Mary Ann Guillory, director, said many people have lost their jobs in the last couple of month “which means no income, and also means no food.”
The Eunice Food Bank feeds nearly 300 families. Since the pandemic, “We now adopted new registered families, anywhere from 10 to 15 families since mid March. We have also helped more homeless people.”
The food bank is accepting food items and toiletries.
