Food Distribution Site At Cajun Field To Open Friday For Covid
UL Lafayette is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank and United Way of Acadiana to establish a drive-thru food distribution site at Cajun Field for people experiencing economic hardship during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The distribution site will be open from 2-4 p.m. Friday. Volunteers wearing gloves and face masks will load boxes of food into vehicles, said Gretchen Lacombe Vanicor, director of UL Lafayette’s Office of Sustainability.
Motorists should enter the distribution site from Cajundome Boulevard, at Gate 5 on Reinhardt Drive. Attendees are encouraged to wear face masks and gloves.
Food will be provided for anyone in need of assistance while supplies last. Organizers estimate to have enough food on hand for between 1,000 and 1,500 families. Registration isnt required.
The distribution site is not a drop-off point for donations. Vanicor, however, said donations are continually needed to keep shelves at Second Harvest, United Way and the Universitys Campus Cupboard stocked.
Campus Cupboard is a resource for undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff members who require short-term assistance meeting their food needs.
Food donations brought to the distribution site will be redirected to the Second Harvest warehouse at 215 E. Pinhook Rd.

A Special Thank You To Brenda Ewart
Some 26 years ago, as her youngest of three children headed into Grade 1, Richmond Hills Brenda Ewart took a part-time job as manager of the Richmond Hill Community Food Bank.
Our family attended Richmond Hill United Church where the food bank was located at the time, and the minister suggested I apply for the job, explained Ewart, stating one attraction was she could be home before her children returned from school.
But what started as a job, has become a passion and has consumed far more hours each week than originally forecast, and has pulled in her husband, Bob, as well. Although she has been paid, both have donated many volunteer hours over the years to what has become a labour of love for both.
Bob had his eyes opened and so did the kids to the need for the food bank, explained Ewart. And the volunteers have become my friends, my family. Some have volunteered longer than Ive been here! Read more.
