The Refinery Mission's annual Hunters for the Hungry food drive will be held on Sunday, September 15, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Local sportsmen and their families are encouraged to "clean our your freezers" and donate frozen processed game and fish from the 2018 season.

Collection sites will be set up throughout Lafayette and other neighboring communities.

All donations are tax deductible and will be used to feed the needy through The Refinery Mission's shelters and programs. The Center's mission is to assist needy members of our community in becoming self-sufficient.

Last year's drive collected over 8,000 lbs of food, which provided 25,000 meals to the impoverished and homeless in the greater Lafayette community.

2019 collection sites are as follows:

Lafayette - UL Cajun Field, 2351 W. Congress St. (main drop site)
Opelousas - Giles Nissan, 4383 I-49 Service Road
Youngsville - First Assembly of God, 3555 Verot School Road
