Some viewers have told us that they haven't received their food shipments for school children in Acadia Parish.

We reached out to the school system, and the superintendent tells us that they're aware of the issues and are working to resolve them.

"The APSB Child Nutrition Department continues to work with the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty directly to resolve some shipping concerns with UPS," Superintendent Scott Richard tells us.

Also, the Three O'clock Project in collaboration with the Acadia Healthy Alliance has established feeding sites in Acadia Parish - they've established one in Iota as well starting this week. Here's more info on that.
