What We Do

We are People Helping, Hand-in-Hand — also known as the Westwego Food Bank. As a Partner Agency of Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana, People Helping, Hand-in-Hand is primarily a food pantry — a distribution point for food to individuals and families in need. Those who qualify may receive a variety of canned goods, dry goods and a limited amount of produce. We also have refrigerated dairy items and frozen foods, when they are available. In addition to our food bank services, People Helping, Hand-in-Hand operates as a community center, conducting events throughout the year:
