Since 2013, Top Box Foods Louisiana has teamed up with community leaders to bring our affordable grocery service to places of worship, schools, and other neighborhood hubs, making healthy food choices easier for thousands of families in New Orleans. In 2017, we began a partnership with the City of New Orleans, Propeller, and Liberty's Kitchen to deliver fresh fruits and vegetables to corner stores in low access areas through the Healthy Corner Store Collaborative. In 2018, we expanded both services to Baton Rouge through Geaux Get Healthy, a HealthyBR initiative by Mayor Sharon Broome.
At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March of 2020, Top Box Foods Louisiana pivoted from delivering to community hubs every other week to a home delivery system, ensuring that individuals and families throughout New Orleans and Baton Rouge would be able to get fresh, affordable, and nutritious food as safely as possible five days a week.
Since the start of our home delivery system, we have proudly delivered more than 65,085 boxes of groceries to more than 31,000 households and generated $396,644 for local vendors.

But why stop there? In 2022, we want to reach even more families through our invaluable programs. That’s where you come in! Our goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of the year that will directly impact the reach of our Makin’ Groceries Program and Community Food Share Program.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to equal access to healthy food for all!
