Local Food Banks

We donate millions of pounds of food each year to local food banks and food pantries, providing millions of meals to families on the Gulf Coast.

We work closely with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, Second Harvest, the Bay Area Food Bank and food pantries all over the Gulf Coast to help those struggling to put food on their table. Through the support of year‑round hunger relief donation program, we are able to give back to our customers and communities across the Gulf Coast. We encourage you to join us and help fight hunger by supporting Feeding America® with a donation of non-perishable food or money at any Rouses Markets. We make it easy to give — just scan a coupon at the Rouses register to add to your bill, or purchase a pre-packed $10 bag of canned goods and drop it in our donation barrel.

“We saw a large increase in donations at our stores in 2020 from people wanting to help us reduce hunger during the pandemic, which was amazing, and we really can’t thank them enough,” says Marcy Nathan, Rouses Creative Director. Roughly 4 in 10 people visiting food banks in 2020 were seeking help for the first time.
