Lafayette, La - Second Harvest Food Bank will host a “ drive-thru” food distribution this Saturday, November 21, 2020 at the Martin Luther King Center for families experiencing hardship. Staff and volunteers will distribute fresh and shelf - stable food items, as well as
kids’ meals between 9am and 11am to anyone needed food relief. The National Guard and Lafayette Sheriff Department will also be
on site to help distribute food and direct traffic. “This year has been a difficult one for all and more families than ever are facing empty plates this holiday season ,” said Brittany Bowie, Impact Manager for Second Harvest Food Bank. “We are hopeful that this food distribution will provide some relief for families as we head into the holiday season.” This is one of many long-term efforts that are underway in response to widespread devastation across South Louisiana. Since the start of the coronavirus emergency in March, Second Harvest has distributed more than 37 million pounds of food and supplies to residents across twenty-three parishes of South
Louisiana. This is more than double what the food bank delivered during the same period a year ago. Second Harvest staff, volunteers, and community partners have also distributed more than 4 million pounds of supplies to recent hurricane survivors in Southwest Louisiana.
