Sheriff Blaise Smith and the deputies of the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office cooked lunch for healthcare workers.

According to a post on the Sheriff's Office Facebook page, the department partnered with Skip Hebert and the Knights of Columbus/Baldwin & Charenton No. 6873.

The Sheriff's office says Hebert started feeding the healthcare workers around Franklin when the COVID-19 pandemic started. Many in the parish have provided financial support to the endeavor which feeds front line workers every Wednesday.

On May 20, Sheriff Smith and his deputies took over the cooking duties and provided lunch for 342 healthcare workers and prepared enough for first responder agencies as well.

Sheriff Smith said that serving others is a privilege and is an important part of community. “We are glad to have the opportunity to be a part of this effort. We are taking care of people who take care of all of us.”
