A drive-thru turkey giveaway will take place on Saturday in Lafayette to address food insecurity.

Around 250 Thanksgiving turkeys will be handed out to families as part of a partnership between Healthy Blue and State Rep. Vincent Pierre.

The drive-thru, no-contact event begins at 11:30 am at the Super 1 Foods on W. Willow Street.

Turkeys will be handed out on a first come first serve basis.

The giveaway is free and open to the public.

Healthy Blue says that the effort is a way to provide families with access to a Thanksgiving meal while ensuring fewer residents go hungry.
