Second Harvest Food Bank delivers emergency meals to tornado victims

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - The Second Harvest Food Bank joined the Food Pantry of New Orleans in delivering more than 1,000 meals to the tornado victims from Tuesday's storm.

“Second Harvest is a disaster first-responder, and we are assessing the situation to see how our resources can best help our neighbors impacted by these terrible storms,” Second Harvest CEO and President Natalie Jayoe said.

The food pantry is one of the 500 food-based agencies who's supported by Second Harvest Food Bank year around. When Food Pantry of New Orleans lost power in Tuesday's storm, they lost the ability to prepare meals which are served daily in their facility.

Second Harvest showed up and delivered 600 prepared meals to help them continue feeding those in need.
