Lousiana Soccer is joining the Fight against Hunger! We are joining NCAA Soccer and Soccer United Against Hunger to help those who have recently been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will be collecting food to give back to those who don't know where their next meal is coming from. We are so grateful for the support from our Lafayette community and are excited to be able to give back!
Join the Fight by donating! We will be hosting a food drive at the Ragin' Cajun Soccer Facility every Tuesday in the month of June between 8AM-6PM. If you are not able to drop off food, you can still give by clicking Donate Now! Check out our social media pages for more information.
Our Mission is to serve and make a difference in our community. Help us help Second Harvest Food Bank feed the 1 in 5 of our neighbors in South Louisiana who have been impacted by COVID-19 and are unsure of their next meal.
Many of our neighbors struggle with hunger every day. They could be our friends, kids in our children’s classes, coworkers, or even our own family members. Currently one in six people in Louisiana suffers from hunger -- nearly 400,000 people, including 135,600 children, in Second Harvest's 23-parish service area alone.
Second Harvest helps by providing food access through a network of 650+ partner agencies in 23 parishes across South Louisiana. Last year, they provided enough food for more than 32 million meals for children, seniors, and families in need.
In order to fully meet all the needs in South Louisiana, it’s estimated that 70 million meals are required EACH YEAR.
YOU can help provide meals to more people in need. Please donate today and let’s “Give Hope” year-round to those who need it most. Together, we can end hunger in South Louisiana.
Help us help Second Harvest to feed more people in need!
Soccer United Against Hunger
Soccer United Against Hunger has started this fundraiser to leverage the power of the soccer community in the United States to help with the food shortage crises. 40 million people relied on food banks in the U.S. prior to the pandemic — including more than 11 million children and nearly 5.4 million seniors. Since the pandemic over 30 million Americans have lost their jobs and many are now relying on food banks. The over 500 Division 1 Men and Women's soccer programs are uniting along with the soccer communities across America to take action against hunger.
Of the 373,450 food-insecure people in South Louisiana, 36% of them are children.
