They began coming to the Fairgrounds early Tuesday morning to pick up their monthly food boxes. Pine Belt Director Ellen Clark said they have 286 people signed up. By lunch break 120 had been by. Clark said, “We’ll see most of the today.”
Pine Belt distributes food boxes from their location in the Fairgrounds on the third Tuesday of each month. Their next distribution day will be December 15th. The food comes from the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank.
Working the distribution in addition to Clark were Annie Wood, Rose Johnson, Carolyn Richmond, Gloria Caldwell, Lawrence Poullard, Charlie Williams and Catherine Gray. (Hope I didn’t miss anyone.)
