The Three O'Clock Project, the Boys & Girls Clubs, and other community stakeholders are working together to make sure children continue to get fed this summer.

The program is in its seventh week, and nearly 750,000 meals have gone out to families since it began.

Now, the groups involved in the program are working to keep that momentum going in the coming weeks as summer begins.

"We're trying to figure out what our school districts are doing this summer. Are they continuing with the emergency meals-to-you program? Are they reopening cafeterias?" said Missy Bienvenu Andrade, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana. "We're starting to ask those questions so the right people in the conversation about feeding kids are involved and we're on the same page."
