Food insecurity is growing in Baton Rouge due to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Food insecurity grew in Baton Rouge due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. A stay at home order was issued in Baton Rouge, and therefore, many people have lost their jobs. While restrictions are easing, the unemployment rate still is growing. Having no other source of income, people don't have the means to pay for food. Now more than ever, continuing food distribution is necessary, especially for the families that have been living paycheck to paycheck. Food banks and shelters are helping people cope.
