More than 18% of people in Baton Rouge are food insecure. Food insecurity refers to a situation where a person is not sure from where their next meal will come or whether a meal will come at all. The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and Holy Grill are places for those who are hungry to go to find food and aid, and to learn the skills they need to help them become self-sufficient in the future. All of the money and donations raised in the Hunger Walk are shared among these two organizations who help alleviate local hunger.
