A non-profit organization is apologizing to families after a food distribution event in Scott was shut down by police.
Safety concerns because of traffic caused the site to close. The program is in conjunction with the Three O'clock Project and Boys and Girls Clubs.
While the food distribution event at the Scott Library didn't go as planned, the people who showed up were still able to get help after being rerouted to Holy Cross Church.
"This is a huge blessing to us to come out and get the box of food," says Katie Bonker.
Bonker was one of many people rerouted from Scott to Lafayette.
She was happy to receive the food for all her children.
"Well I have seven kids..and my husband works in the oil field but that has kind of slowed down," says Bonker.
Regardless of the location of where the food distribution was, Bonker is thankful.
"Just thank you Acadiana," says Bonker.
Organizers are planning to reschedule the food distribution in Scott, but no date has been confirmed.
