The Three O'Clock Project and Boys and Girls Club food distribution is a great success in helping people in the community rebound.

It started with meals being served in just Lafayette, but now there is distribution weekly throughout Acadiana.

Organizers say sites in Lafayette, Iberia, St. Landry, and St. Martin Parishes have distributed over 750,000 meals since starting in early April.

"Yes, it's hard work but it's incredibly gratifying when you're able to physically place food in a person's vehicle knowing that that is going to be the way they feed their kids for the week to come," explained Missy Andrade, President and CEO of Boys and Girls Club of Acadiana. "It's a great thing to be a part of and we're very happy that we've been included in."
