No paperwork? No problem!
There are no barriers to getting food aid from CAN. You do not need to provide proof of income. However, there is a limit to how much we can give. We will provide as many direct resources as possible to as many as possible, on a first come first serve basis. Signing up to receive food aid is not a guarantee of receiving food aid. When you add yourself to our list, we will notify you if we are able to help. Signing up for one distribution does not guarantee you a spot in the next distribution. We ask that our community remains mindful of the special needs of the most vulnerable, as we may sometimes direct aid to special populations, such as the elderly, homebound, or medically vulnerable. If you sign up and are then unable to pick up your meal kit, please let us know as soon as possible so we can give it to someone else.
Volunteers are needed for picking up, prepping, packaging, and delivering food. Pickups and delivery volunteers must have a car.
We are accepting monetarydonations through the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Fund here:
