Food for Senior boxes
The Food for Seniors program will distribute food boxes in DeQuincy and Starks at its regular time and locations on Tuesday, Aug. 30. Due to the recent flood conditions, delivery trucks were unable to drive in from Baton Rouge to Calcasieu Parish.
The program is a partnership between the Calcasieu Parish Human Services Department and Catholic Charities to provide a nutritional food box filled with non-perishable goods and healthy food staples.
The Food for Seniors food boxes are served to seniors who are 60 years and older and meet the Federal Income Guidelines. Each month the program holds food box distributions at 17 different sites throughout Calcasieu Parish.
The program is continually accepting new registrants. Those interested may call toll free 800-522-3333 extension 9666 to register or call 337-721-4020 for information.
