LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Second Harvest Food Bank and the Southwest Louisiana Center for Health Services hosted a food distribution drive-thru today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2000 Opelousas St.

They were able to feed anywhere between 500 to 700 families.

With a wide spread variety of food, people who attended the distribution received things such as chicken, sausage, cheese, milk, yogurt, sweet potatoes, fruits and vegetables.

“I think we had a little over 40 pallets of food, boxed food, and over 1,600 gallons of milk today in conjunction with Second Harvest, Cajun Navy and Cajun Commissary to provide food to the community,” said Dianna Ross, Director of Community Affairs for the SWLA Center for Health Services.

They are planning another distribution soon and will announce the date shortly.
