Food Link Day donates to the Ronald McDonald House

MONROE, La. - Today is a day many at the Ronald McDonald House look forward to each year.

Food link day means the Louisiana Farm Bureau brings over a lot of food, and everyday items families need including toothbrushes, shampoos, and batteries.

Ronald McDonald Houses offer families places to stay when loved ones have extended treatments in the hospital.

Today's donation will keep the pantry full for months.

"The house guests love this day also because a lot of wonderful new food is coming into the house and will be available for their use. Because when families stay with us, they have children in the hospital, and their already under a lot of stress, so it's really nice to come back from the hospital and find a lot of food that's available for their use," says Georgia Street, Director of Ronald McDonald House.

The farm bureau calls it Food Link Day to make sure children know that local farmers grow and raise most of the food on their tables.
