The Louisiana rice industry and Second Harvest, along with the Louisiana Food Bank Association, celebrated National Rice Month by marking Hunger Action Month.

The event took place this morning at the Historic Rice Theatre in downtown Crowley.

In addition to the annual donation of thousands of pounds of rice to the Louisiana Food Bank Association, USA Rice kicked off the annual “Think Rice Road Trip.”

The event starts in Crowley and travels across Louisiana to Monroe for these two events. The “Tour” will continue on throughout cities around the nation, with giveaways, interviews, and activities to remind everyone to “Think Rice.”
