WBRZ, along with our partners, Associated Food Stores and Valluzzo Companies McDonald’s Restaurants launch “2 The Pantry”, a new campaign supporting the Saint Vincent DePaul Dining Room.
Nonperishable food items will be collected at participating Associated Food Stores in specially marked shopping carts. The campaign will culminate with a big collection day event at McDonald’s located at 4979 Jones Creek Road in Baton Rouge on Wednesday, October 12th.
WBRZ will broadcast live inviting viewers to support 2 The Pantry. Supporters will also be able to donate online by using the QR Code on the printed items at both Associated Food Stores and participating McDonald’s Restaurants. Signs will be located at participating McDonald’s drive-thrus and doors with the QR Code.
WBRZ appreciates all the support from our sponsors and community to help feed the needy in these difficult times.

About the St. Vincent de Paul Dining Room
In 1982, the Society opened the St. Vincent de Paul Dining Room, which is now the number one hot meal provider in our community. Located at 220 St. Vincent de Paul Place, our dining room serves a hot, nutritious meal every day of the year, as well as a brown bag supper. We serve the homeless, elderly, transient, and poor.
The Saint Vincent DePaul Dining Room is much more than a "Soup Kitchen." No matter what's on the menu, you can be sure it will be a complete, nutritious, and tasty meal. For many of the needy men, women, and children in our community, it is the only well-balanced meal of the day. For some of our homeless Dining Room guests, it is the only meal of the day. They also offer brown bag suppers so many of our citizens in need don't go to bed hungry.
