Lake Charles Food Bank


CCSWLA provides two food distribution days each month in our Lake Charles area at our main office.  It is located at 1225 2nd Street, Lake Charles, La. The dates of our distribution typically fall on the second and third Friday each month.  The dates can change if a holiday or an emergency takes place so it is important to stay up to date with our food distribution calendar which can be found on our Facebook page at the start of each month.

 Clients who are registered with our Lake Charles food bank can come once a month on either Friday.  Clients who are not registered are also welcomed to attend our food distribution as they can be registered from their cars while in line for food.  New clients will need to provided the following information when registering:  name, address, phone number, number of individuals in the household, total gross income of the household, and proof of SNAP/TANF/SSI benefits.

If you are registered at one of our other food banks in the 5-parish region, you will need to pick up at the location in which you registered.  If you need to change your pick-up location, please contact our main office at (337)439-7436 and let them know so we can get you set up at.
