Food Bank

Our donations of staple food items are always needed and welcome by the Baton Rouge Food Bank as it seeks to provide food to those in need in the Greater Baton Rouge area. In addition to currently dated canned and packaged foods, items like snack packs of peanut butter and crackers, cheese and crackers, four-cup fruit and custards packs, and granola bars are always needed for the week-end backpack of snacks that some children take home on Friday.  Look for the new Food Bank cartons in the kitchen area near the bulletin boards.  Thanks as always for your generosity. 

Help Us Create a Chronology of the Social Justice History of the Unitarian Church of Baton Rouge.  

We have started this timeline of the church’s response to racial, ethnic, and gender issues along with major milestones in the church.  

We also have racial, ethnic, and gender milestones in Baton Rouge along with Louisiana and the United States. 

The chronology is posted between the sanctuary foyer and the kitchen area.  Use post-its to comment, make corrections, ask questions, or add details.  Or send comments to Maida Owens, maidaowens@gmail.com. Also see the church history online:  http://unitarianchurchbr.com/about-us/local-church-history
