CAMERON, La. (AP) - A dozen Cameron Parish residents headed to Moore, Okla., over the weekend to cook traditional Cajun meals for tornado victims.
The Lake Charles American Press reports (http://bit.ly/13AtSo2 ) that the effort was part of a project called "Cameron Giving Back." One participant noted that the destruction in Moore is similar to what southwestern Louisiana residents suffered when Hurricane Rita hit in 2005.
Dishes served in the Moore High School parking lot included shrimp stew, fried fish and jambalaya.
Volunteers also donated T-shirts and caps left over from southwest Louisiana festivals.
