Culture Aid NOLA (CAN), the no-barrier food bank of New Orleans, will provide 2,000 local families with disaster preparedness supplies on July 16th at Tad Gormley Stadium in City Park. Kits including canned water, shelf-stable foods, 5 gallon buckets, baby wipes, trash bags, children's activity books, and other essential supplies will be available at July Supply on both a walk-up and drive-up basis.
Like all CAN events, no paperwork, identification or proof of income is required, and music- from the Trombone Shorty Academy Alumni Band and Soul Brass Band- will play along the distribution line to welcome guests. Stay tuned for more details about public transportation access and drive-thru/walk-up options.
July Supply is made possible by partners including: The Center For Disaster Philanthropy, Good360, Conscious Alliance, Can’d Aid, Second Harvest, Mayor LaToya Cantrell, New Orleans City Council members, NolaReady, Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, VFW post 8973, Bastion Community of Resilience, Louisiana Fish Fry and Juan LaFonta.
