A drive-thru luncheon on Friday honored local farmers for their contributions to the culture and economy in Acadia Parish.

Chamber of Commerce Chairman Chance Henry added that the appreciation event illustrates to Acadia Parish residents that, "We can still move forward through COVID, no matter what the obstacles are, and we can push through and find a way to overcome those obstacles."

Plate lunches of seafood etouffee were served in a drive-through pick-up format from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm.
