Every Tuesday morning at 7:00 am, volunteers from Solomon House distribute groceries to families in need in the New Iberia area. Families must register on an annual basis, providing income information to Solomon House staff. If families meet the criteria, then they are registered for the program for one year.

The groceries distributed in the Brown Bag program are donated by area retailers, including Walmart, Big Lots, Starbucks and Raising Cane's, at no cost to Solomon House. In the first six months of 2012, Solomon House distributed over $100,000 in groceries to help fight hunger in New Iberia.
