This non-profit organization, is encouraging people to make serving at St. Joseph diner and FoodNet Food Bank a part of their New Year's resolution.

"Both St. Joseph Diner and FoodNet Food bank, both rely on the volunteers teams. When you get here to volunteer we've got a very clear cut cope set of work were putting together meals, we're putting together those food bags, and literally serving them everything that goes with that." said Ben Broussard, Chief of External Affairs for Catholic Charities of Acadiana.
