Free food pantries in Caddo Parish.

Food pantries in the Shreveport Louisiana area and across the parish provide assistance to thousands of families per year. They offer everything from a box of groceries to holiday meals or weekend snacks for children.

While the focus of these Caddo Parish food banks is on very low income families, anyone can turn to them. The disabled as well as senior citizens may also register for a Meals on Wheels service. The distribution of the food can occur from pantries based at churches, located in parks, or senior centers. There are sites all across the region that struggling residents can call upon.

Some of the locations will offer other services, such as free Christmas meals or clothing year round. Or people can inquire into more targeted resources, such as diapers, clothing, or even food stamps benefits that are available across Shreveport. Much more is available as well, both in season and year round. For example, find free Christmas food.
