The Latino Farmers Cooperative of Louisiana is always looking for fresh fruit and vegetables for our low-income Latino families that live in Central City, Mid-City, Treme and 7th Ward. We also need pasta, tomatoes paste, beans (no canned please), rice, sugar, tortillas, bread, eggs. Sorry but we do not accept cloth.

Location & Open Times
Friday - The Cooperative does not have a permanent location to distribute the food. Right now, we use parking lots of schools and community gardens.
We can only accept donations by appointment only. Call Kathia at 504-333-3611
God Bless You
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
