The City of Opleousas was host to another food distribution site on Wednesday.

Volunteers from the First Harvest Community garden, Second Harvest Food Bank and the community at large gave out packages of food to those in need today.

The volunteers boxed the food and then loaded them into the cars that passed through the line on South Bullard Street.

Organizers say they hope to do more of these food drives.

"First harvest, second harvest, and franks automotive received a large pallet of food for our community so our community members along with our police department and civic officials gathered today to help package as you can see the food and distribute it to our community today. And its great to see," said Assistant Dist. Attorney for the 27th District Shaunn Caillier-Harden.

Wednesday's food distribution happened from 2:00 pm to 4:00 p.m.
