The Three O'clock Project announced on Friday that food distributions will continue through the end of August, as school districts continue to delay their start dates.

The organization was scheduled to end distribution today, after serving more than 2.5 million meals since April.

"Between Three O'Clock Project, the United Way, us here at Boys and Girls Club, and a number of the partners that we worked with, everyone has been very willing to extend that meal distribution through the month, so that people have a solution for whenever school starts," said Missy Andrade, President/CEO of Boys and Girls Club of Acadiana.

Area organizers say they're just grateful to be able to help thousands of families during a difficult time.

"Being able to be a part of that process was really gratifying," added Andrade, "and allowed our staff, and certainly volunteers, to feel like they were really able to be a part of a solution during a time that was very anxiety inducing and continues to be for many people."

A new distribution schedule is expected by Monday.
