Two of Second Harvest Food Bank's member agencies, Alpha Omega Church International and Faith House of Acadiana accepted hams from Precision Rehabilitation today.
For each new patient during the month of November, Precision Rehabilitation donated a ham to Second Harvest Food Bank to help families in need in Acadiana.
