Little Zorah Baptist Church in Jeanerette and its pastor Reverend Wilfred Johnson is helping the Iberia Parish community rebound.

For the past four Mondays, the church and Rev. Johnson have been helping those in need.

In the first three weeks of the program, Rev. Johnson and his wife fed more than 400 people at the Snack Shack in Jeanerette.

"First of all, I'm a pastor. I love people. I love helping people," Johnson explained. "I've had struggles in my life, and when I was called to ministry, we felt the need to open up a place like this to feed the community."
