Second Harvest Food Bank effort to keep hunger out of South Louisiana
Lafayette, LA (KADN) — Second Harvest Food Bank was able to distribute food to our community today in an effort to keep hunger out of south Louisiana. Second Harvest Food Bank was able to collect 26 hams from community donations to give to Lafayette's Precision Rehabilitation. Precision Rehabilitation was then able to distribute these 26 hams evenly to Faith House and Alpha Omega Church both located in Lafayette. Faith House and Alpha Omega Church will now distribute these hams to those in our community that are in need.
"Second Harvest Food Bank Acadiana serves over 87,000 people from Morgan City to Lake Charles and what we do is we provide food to agencies across the twelve parishes that we serve from Morgan City of Lake Charles and they provide food to people in their community," says Amos Batiste, Development Coordinator for Second Harvest Food Bank.
Mr. Batiste says the great thing about Second Harvest Food Bank is that they can take a dollar that someone donates and turn it into fifteen dollars or fifteen cents worth of groceries. The ultimate goal of this organization is to ultimately wipe out hunger in south Louisiana, which was displayed here today in Acadiana.
