Charity Spotlight: Second Harvest Food Bank

Second Harvest of Greater New Orleans was founded on December 9, 1982, under the leadership of Archbishop Philip M. Hannan. Bishop Roger P. Morin, Vicar of Community Affairs for the Archdiocese of New Orleans, and Gregory Ben Johnson, Director of the Social Apostolate of the Archdiocese, with the advice of community leaders, added emergency food distribution to the range of services the Archdiocese offered. By July 1983 the food bank had 23 faith-based and nonprofit member agencies receiving product. In 1984, the numbers grew to more than 50,000 pounds of food per month to 79 agencies.

By 1985, 100,000 pounds per month were being distributed. On September 13, 1985, Second Harvest Food Bank became a fully accredited member of America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network, allowing it to receive large donations from all over the country. A merger in 1989 with The Food Bank for Emergencies of Greater New Orleans, Inc. led to the addition of the emergency food box program to the food bank’s efforts to reclaim food that was going to waste. As it grew, the organization went through several name changes, finally becoming Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana in 2004.
