Acadiana Movers is encouraging local businesses to participate in their Mardi Gras Food Drive.

All food donations will go to Lafayette’s FoodNet Food Bank.

Canned and nonperishable food items, such as red beans and rice, are being accepted.

Acadiana Movers will provide collection boxes for the businesses willing to participate. Businesses would then accept donations until March 5. Acadiana Movers will then pick up the filled boxes and bring them to the FoodNet Food Bank.

If your business would like to participate in the food drive, please contact Jill at (337) 504-4395 to have the collection boxes delivered.
