(06/16/20) 1 in 4 children across Louisiana suffer from food insecurity, and the COVID-19 pandemic is making it worse for children out of school.
“Meals to You” is a partnership that supplies meals to children all across the country, serving nearly 20 communities in the ArkLaMiss.
“Food For Good has been serving children for the last decade, and joined Meals to You during the pandemic”
So far they have served nearly half a million meals in Louisiana alone.
“There’s 10 lunches, and 10 breakfasts, fully shelf stable. We package those meals into a box, seal that box up and then in conjunction with the Baylor Collaborative and the USDA, send those boxes directly to the school children’s home” Doug Hargis with the PepsiCo foundation said.
