Not Homeless, but Still Hungry

Interview with Gerald Duhon Jr.: One in eight Louisianans need food bank services

Gerald Duhon Jr. is Chief Philanthropy Officer for Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana. Gerald explains what Second Harvest Food Bank does for the community and where the organization gets the food it distributes, as well as the demographics of the people Second Harvest serves. Surprisingly, only 10 percent of Second Harvest recipients are homeless. According to Gerald, "One in eight people in Louisiana is in need of food bank services."
