The Port Barre Police Department is hosting a mobile food pantry with food provided by Second Harvest Food Bank on Thursday, January 28.

This happens on the last Thursday of every month at different locations in town, and this month it will be at the Port Barre High School Sports Complex.

This program has been available to Port Barre residents for more than 3 years, but since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the organizers say they've opened it up to anybody who needs help, no matter where they're from.

"There are more and more people who are in need in this pandemic, more and more people losing their jobs. They rely on this every month," says Dawn Quebedeaux, with the Police Department.

You don't need to bring or say anything when you show up either.

"No ID, no application, no nothing," says Hannah Artigue, who works at the Police Department.

The event will start at 12:30 in the afternoon for whoever is in need.
