CADDO PARISH COMMISSION TO HOLD PARISH WIDE FOOD DISTRIBUTION BOX EVENT MARCH 27
The Caddo Parish Commission, in partnership with the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, will host a drive thru food box distribution event at multiple locations across Caddo Parish on Saturday, March 27, starting at 8am and 9am.
“There have been multiple challenges in our community, such as COVID-19 and recent winter storms, that have made it difficult for many of our citizens to stay afloat,” said Caddo Parish Commission President Lyndon B. Johnson. “We believe that it is important to offer this distribution opportunity to provide some temporary relief to those in the community who may need help with food insecurity and access to food,” said Johnson.
The distribution event is possible through a $30,000 allocation approved by the Caddo Parish Commission and partnership with the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana for food acquisition and distribution.
