Lafayette Veterans Assisting Others hosted a veterans drive-by breakfast Saturday in Lafayette.

The event was held in the Northgate Mall parking lot on the NE Evangeline Thruway from 8am-10am.

Volunteers handed out 150-200 bags that included a muffin or danish, juice, hand sanitizer, masks, and socks.

Organizers said the event was to thank local veterans for their service and promote good health.

"This is about health and well-being and education," explained Anazia Andrus Sam, founder and president of Veterans Assisting Others. "In August, we will have a back to school program for veterans, where they can come and get supplies, and in November we are going to have our second annual veterans drive-by parade."
