Parish residents who receive the food boxes from Pine Belt got a double helping this week. On Tuesday cars lined up from inside the Fairgrounds back out to highway 71.
A group of staff and volunteers broke down the pallets of fresh and frozen food and packed the individual boxes. Non-perishable food came already boxed up. About 20 folks joined the distribution effort on Tuesday.
People coming to Pine Belt were told to pop their trunks and drive by. They checked in and workers put two boxes in the vehicle for each eligible recipient. They each got one box of non-perishable food and one box of fresh and frozen meat, fruit and vegetables.
