Walmart Grant Brings Technology to Food for Families/Food for Seniors  

Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans' Food for Families/Food for Seniors program provides monthly nutritional food boxes to low income seniors in an effort to combat food insecurity and improve their overall health. Last year, the program distributed 26,679,480 pounds of food to 56,999 individuals across the entire state of Louisiana.

Thanks to a grant from the Walmart Foundation, Food for Families was recently able to purchase new tablets to use at distribution centers in the Delhi and Shreveport areas. Read the full story to see how the new tablets are revolutionizing the distribution process.
